Clean Energy uses the information superhighway to promote what it calls “America's Natural Gas Highway,” the collection of fueling stations that offer gas products in addition to or exclusive of gasoline and diesel. More such stations are opening by the day, many of them devoted solely to public transportation fleets. An example is Dallas Area Rapid Transit, now taking delivery of five new CNG buses each week until it reaches its 452-bus order.
These are exciting developments for Oklahoma because of the abundance of natural gas here and the economic impact of the companies that extract and market it. Even if it takes many years for average drivers to embrace CNG, their trash may go to the dump in a gas-powered truck that's passed on the freeway by a gas-powered airport shuttle van.
