The past year was historic for the electric car industry.

In 2018, the Tesla Model 3, a car aptly dubbed by Elon Musk as a “bet-the-company” project, proved its naysayers wrong by establishing itself as the United States’ best-selling luxury vehicle with sales of 145,846 units over the year. That’s far above the sales of the next car on the list — the Lexus RX, which sold 111,641 units in 2018.

Amidst the ongoing EV revolution is the potential of a notable shift in the mindset of car buyers. With options like the Model 3 on the market, people that are shopping for cars are no longer limited to vehicles that are equipped with internal combustion engines. Gone are the days when electric cars were short-range and unappealing. With the Model 3, Tesla was able to offer a vehicle that is reasonably priced (especially in the case of the Mid Range variant), attractive, and still loaded with advanced features.

This has not gone unnoticed by one of Wall Street’s noted oil analysts, Stephen Schork. In an appearance at Fox Business, Schork, who is a veteran in the world of commodity and derivatives trading, pointed that the emergence of electric cars could very well be affecting the oil industry.
