Tesla doesn't install lone superchargers, even in rural areas. So I think you must have meant plural (Superchargers) in Mobile, AL. The fewest I've seen were four, more often 8, so if someone is using it, you don't have to wait. The lines you read about in the media are very rare unless you happen to live in a real hotbed of Tesla growth activity. And then Tesla comes in and builds giant new Supercharging facilities to handle the growth. The largest Supercharger Station in the world has 76 stalls and in the US it's 56 stalls with plans to expand it to over 100 stalls this year. Over the last several years here in Western Washington I've seen the number of Supercharger locations grow like wildfire. My local Supercharger has 8 stalls and there are most often only 1 or 2 cars at it because Tesla keeps adding additional stations in surrounding areas to handle the rapidly growing load.I live in Wisconsin. We are considered one of the most progressive states and a testbed for innovation. Our democrat governor struck down a bill that would have ended the law requiring dealerships in order for a manufacturer to sell cars in the state. Michigan has a similar law, and so does Texas and many others.
I see teslas all the time up here, but the first and only supercharger I have ever seen was in Mobile, Alabama. And there was a model 3 using it.
