Stunning Fact: China Operates 1.5 Million Natural Gas Vehicles But US Just 250,000

China gets just 5% of its total energy from natural gas. The USA is the world's number 1 gas producer and gets 26% of its total energy from gas.

Yet, China already has 1.5 million vehicles operating on natural gas, while the US has a puny 250,000.

Uncle Sam is still guzzling oil for transportation--more expensive and dirtier oil!  At the national and state level, there is a total failure to get alternative transportation fuels displacing rapidly oil.  That failure will not be remedied, until state and federal governments accelerate the construction of alternative fueling stations for natural gas and electric vehicles.

I have a plan to deploy within 5 miles by 2023 of every Pennsylvanian both a natural gas and electric vehicle fueling facility.  The plan would save many Pennsylvanians $1,000 to $2,000 per year in gasoline costs. Let's get going.
