There aren't even 270 million people in the US with driver's licenses.  Some things you read on the internet are just wrong
Some people own multiple vehicles, not all vehicles require driving license.

leading to the price being about the same.
Prices have consistently increased over time. The supply doesnt always follow the demand. If cost of production for raw materials is same, their price will likely stay same or increase over time.

 It's like your computer (which has an electric battery). 
Its nothing like my computer. Car battery is over 1000 times bigger than a computer battery, and battery for trucks and airplanes even bigger.

I think you have lost this exchange by saying the US population should use the energy levels of North Korea
No, I am pretty, sure that USA has lost this exchange.

But it's impossible to drive multiple cars at once, and I don't know if your 2nd claim is correct.

Prices have consistently increased over time. 
Inflation

The supply doesnt always follow the demand.
Not always, but there has been a mistake in the car making industry that they are fixing as we speak.

Well do you drive or take public transit?

But I am greedy.
So is everybody else!  Practice what you preach or change your speech!

Thats why they probably dont do it at once.

, and I don't know if your 2nd claim is correct.
There are 230 million driving licenses in USA, and 270 million vehicles.

Inflation
Yeah, so expect more inflation in the future.

Well do you drive or take public transit?
Sure, I dont drive, but I do use public transport from time to time.

So is everybody else!  Practice what you preach or change your speech!
One can do neither, so that is a false or.

Lets say there are 2 people; Person A and Person B.  They both drive 80 km a day.  Person A owns 1 vehicle; Person B owns 2.  Person A is getting all their driving done with their 1 vehicle; Person B splits it up.  I don't believe there is too much correlation between how much driving in total you perform vs the number of cars you own; but I believe there is a strong negative correlation between how much driving per vehicle vs the number of cars you own (assuming you own at least 1 car).

There are 230 million driving licenses in USA, and 270 million vehicles.
My family has 5 people with licenses and 3 cars.  A lot of families may be my family's size and only have 1 or 2 cars (or 0).

Yeah, so expect more inflation in the future.
Supply and demand adjusted for inflation (the stock market rises faster than the inflation rate on average).

Sure, I dont drive, but I do use public transport from time to time.
That public transit is powered either with gasoline or electricity.  So you use energy more than the average North Korean from the public transit you take.

So is everybody else!  Practice what you preach or change your speech!

Incorrect.  You can merely become pro energy consumption.

It makes your original claim about how much average car drives false, since your claim was about per car, not per person.

My family has 5 people with licenses and 3 cars.  A lot of families may be my family's size and only have 1 or 2 cars (or 0).
Sorry, but I prefer to trust sources rather than personal examples which may not apply generally.

Supply and demand adjusted for inflation (the stock market rises faster than the inflation rate on average).
Again, no one will sell all the stock market to help people buy cars.

Incorrect
If you are saying that its impossible to preach what you dont practice and not change your speech, then what are you accusing me of?

So then per person would probably be a better metric.

# of licensr holders in the US: 230 million

# of km/licence holder/year: 20k

# of km driven/year in the US: 4.6 Trillion

Kilo Watts/km of an electric car: .2 KWh

KWH/year: 920 Billion KWH

Total US energy consumption/year: 4.05 Trillion KWH

This is about a 22% increase.

My family has 5 people with licenses and 3 cars.  A lot of families may be my family's size and only have 1 or 2 cars (or 0).
Sorry, but I prefer to trust sources rather than personal examples which may not apply generally.
Do you really think there are that many families with 5 people that have 8 cars to offset all the families with 3 cars?  It seem unrealistic.

Again, no one will sell all the stock market to help people buy cars.
People may sell some of their stock so they personally can buy a car.

If you are saying that its impossible to preach what you dont practice and not change your speech, then what are you accusing me of?
I was saying Incorrect when you said one can do neither.

Thats, again, for cars. The source which you are using is talking about cars alone. Not trucks or transport vans.

I was saying Incorrect when you said one can do neither
I said both claims can be false. Thats what it means when I say one can do "neither of those".

People may sell some of their stock so they personally can buy a car.
Yeah, "may".
