It costs an average of $0.42 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) to charge an electric car at a public charging station in Utah, according to data gathered by Stable Auto, an EV charger software developer. The national average is $0.45 per kWh.

Context: A typical EV with 300 miles of range usually takes about 75-100 kWh to go from empty to full.

The big picture: Charging an electric vehicle costs three times as much at a public charging site in West Virginia than in Nebraska — a gap that suggests EV charging companies are still figuring out how to price a top-off, Axios Pro: Climate Deals' Alan Neuhauser reports.

Zoom in: Arizona, Connecticut, Kentucky, Massachusetts and West Virginia have the most expensive charging stations, according to Stable's survey of about 9,000 level three fast-charging stations in January.

  • Prices there ranged from $0.52 to $0.54 per kilowatt-hour.
  • Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and Mississippi were the cheapest, with prices spanning $0.17 to $0.31.
