Nat Gas is the fuel of the future for the USA.

There are several good companies that are going to make this happen in the USA. Nat Gas is much more practical than other “green” fuels. It actually costs less in the US than conventional gas/diesel right now.

If FedEx and other truckers are looking at natural gas for fuel, fine.

Obama Sahib should stay out of it, the jerk. If he gets involved, it will wreck any prospects of a sensible solution.

I’d love to see it used as locomotive fuel.

Honda Civcs are already available that use NG. Chevy also has an NG-powered van.

CNG for local delivery or short haul trucking makes sense. Long haul does not. I wonder if they’re capable of making the distinction, or if this will turn into yet another mandate that ends up costing more money?

In Russia, most government and up to a half commercial vehicles are SNG conversions. It cuts fuel costs in half. Conversion shops are everywhere, you can convert any vehicle for about $2,000 there.
