  • CNG Coverage from Electric Car Web Site

    Recently natural gas vehicles received additional funding from the federal government. The House of Representatives voted highly in favor of a bill reauthorizing the Department of Energy's natural gas automotive research program. The bill passed with a vote of 393 in favor and only 35 against. The passing of the bill provides an additional funding of $150 million over the course of the next 5 years into research of natural gas vehicles.

    Congress could have built about 500 more CNG stations with that $150 million. That would get more people to buy a CNG car.

      We need a strategy to address the cities where we need fueling sites. A few in CA I could list are: Needles, Blythe (or Quartzite, AZ), Redding, Bishop and/or Mammoth (HWY395). Include stations in Yuma and Flagstaff AZ and we could get out of CA on the major interstates.

        Add Eureka and/or Salem, OR to the list...
        Old news, but I'm still waiting on the I-5 corridor:

        And then there's the coastal towns:
        CA: Eureka and Crescent City
        OR: Coos Bay, Newport, Astoria
        That'd help the tourist industry.

        Maybe more fueling stations should be our burning platform for a next get together (i.e., planning objectives for a future caravan to Sacramento)?
