WWorldwide, there are more than 10 million vehicles running on natural gas. Unfortunately, less than 2% of them are in the US. By expanding the market for Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) and creating aggressive incentives that drive the transition to natural gas as a transportation fuel, we can create millions of jobs and address key issues involving energy dependence and the environment. (In fact, we can reduce Florida’s $4-billion-per-month-foreign-oil-bill by 30% or more within 10 years if we start using clean, domestic natural gas to fuel our trucks, buses and fleets.)
