Electric Car Charging Station Companies Issue Warning Over VW Settlement

What is everybody freaking out about? It's not like Volkswagen has done a bunch of shady crap in the past...well, you know, except for that whole emissions thingy that forced the company to pay this $2 billion in the first place.

While charging station companies called the money a potential "game changer," they worry that if it is misspent, it could hurt competition. "The agreement shouldn't pick winners and losers, especially given that this emerging market transition will in no small part define 21st century transportation," twenty eight companies, including ChargePoint, EV Connect and Electric Vehicle Charging Association, said in a letter to the U.S. Justice Department on Friday.
