Been enjoying the perk of free electric car parking at Los Angeles International Airport?

Try not to get used to it then, as from March 1, 2013, you'll have to pay just like everybody else.

Los Angeles World Airports has confirmed, via Carstations, that LAX will no longer be providing free parking to owners of electric cars. You can read about it on their leaflet (.pdf file).

It isn't all bad news, though.

The majority of LAX's electric car charging stations have recently been upgraded, "to allow for universal use by today's technologically advanced electric vehicles."

Not only have they been upgraded, but electric car owners can still charge for free--even if they have to pay for the space itself.

As Carstations speculates, the new parking charges for electric vehicles may also lead to private lots undercutting them and offering free charging--so electric vehicle owners should keep their eyes peeled for a better deal.

All good things must someday come to an end, right?
