Clean, green and readily available, experts are calling natural gas the smart and feasible solution for America’s mid-term transportation needs. However, with over 150,000 natural gas vehicles (NGVs) on American roads, over 1,100 NGV fueling stations, and one-in-five of all new transit buses being powered by natural gas, some could argue the future is here.
Not only does natural gas cost, on average, 1/3 less at the pump, its environmental benefits are inarguable. Running exclusively on natural gas, the Honda Civic GX has been named “America’s Greenest Car” five consecutive years- and boasts virtually no emissions. Due to their positive impact on the environment, NGVs often earn drivers substantial state and local incentives while the Honda Civic GX can qualify buyers for Federal Alternative Motor Vehicle tax credits.
Natural gas vehicles also provide superior convenience and safety. While new technology allows NGV drivers to fill their tanks at home, natural gas cars can run on regular gasoline if need be. Plus, in the event of an accident or leak, natural gas dissipates into the air. Gasoline and diesel, on the other hand, pool on the ground, creating a fire hazard.
