Does the US need more Natural Gas powered cars?

Posted By on February 9, 2006

NGV America, formerly Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition, ran an ad in several major newspapers across the country yesterday. The ad encourages the President and federal policy makers to include natural gas fuels and vehicles in our nation’s energy security planning.

I’ll be interested to find out who else feels left out. I’m not sure where I personally stand on natural gas as a vehicle fuel since we use just about every cubic foot for heating, etc? It is a far cleaner fuel for the fleet vehicles in cities and is being used now, yet its not renewable; it also has the disadvantage of adding to the already high demand on natural gas reserves causing prices to soar. Maybe its not the best alternative available today?

The full ad (in PDF format) is available here.
