    State officials say drivers of electric vehicles will soon be able to recharge at four places along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, and eventually at many more.
     
    The Turnpike Commission on Tuesday said it expects to open electric vehicle charging stations this summer at four service plazas.
     
    They will be at the Oakmont plaza in Allegheny County, the New Stanton plaza in Westmoreland County, the Bowmansville plaza in Lancaster County and the King of Prussia plaza in Montgomery County.
     
    Customers will be able to pay with a credit card at the charging station. The cost to charge vehicles hasn't been set but will be announced before the stations open.
     
    Eventually, officials plan to offer electric vehicle charging at all 17 service plazas along the 550 miles of the turnpike.
