Wayne Alexander of Walton says he knows frustration with gas prices isn't new.

After all, Alexander has made his living the last three decades by converting gas-powered vehicles into electric automobiles. He owns Electric Blue Auto Conversions in Walton.

Alexander says his business has been steady over the years, but it's getting busy now that gas has long passed the $3 dollar mark. He says he's got about 12 cars to convert just in the next month.

He charges $12,500 to replace gas engines with electric motors. Options, such as air conditioning, power steering and electric heat, are extra. He says the motors he installs last for about 5 million miles, are virtually maintenance-free and are more efficient than gas engines.
