I agree. Long haul trucks need hydrogen - short haul trucks can be all battery.

Maybe.
Remember, a big rig bought in 2034 can still be used for a decade or two after that.
Also, big rigs can still drive in from other states to drop off or pickup shipments.
Hydrogen is much more costly than electricity, so to be cost effective fuel cost needs to be considered.

Look back 15 years and see where BEVs were and compare to today.
Now look forward 15 years and make an educated guess.
And keep in mind that many trucks will likely be autonomous.

Tesla has already driven a semi across the country with the existing Supercharger network.
