CNGnow is a collaborative effort by Chesapeake, the Pickens Plan, American Clean Skies Foundation, NGVAmerica, America's Natural Gas Alliance and American Gas Association.

Delegates also are being ferried to and from the airport on CNG-fueled shuttles, courtesy of America's Natural Gas Alliance.

“We are proud to have this opportunity to provide transportation to convention participants in Tampa and to give them a firsthand experience with natural gas vehicles,” said Regina Hopper, president of the alliance. “Companies and local leaders across the country are embracing natural gas as a fuel choice and calling for more vehicle options and filling stations to help drive this change.

“Our message in Tampa and beyond is that this is an extraordinary opportunity for our nation, and it's time to get on board with this American fuel choice.”
