    Natural Gas is the new fuel. FEDEX, UPS, Waste Management and many other companies have or are in the process of converting all their vehicles to natural gas. The Ford F 350 pick up truck can be purchased to run on natural gas. The hybrid natural gas/ electric. Honda Civic has been around since 1998.

    Prices at refueling stations in the USA range from .85 to 2.80 dollars per GGE - Gasoline Gallon Equivalent.http://www.altfuelprices.com
    It appears that the wide range most likely could be the difference in price between CNG and LNG.

    Obviously, many of you are clueless about natural gas as a fuel.

    Actually --- it's laughable stuff.. Really should be a parody of this "proof"..

    If you go down to

    And open the Excel Spreadsheet for OECD --- what you'll find is by FAR the largest "subsidies" to the oil companies in their accounting are :::

    Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program 0.5Bil$$$$$

    And

    Fuel Tax Exemptions for Farmers == about 1.0Bill$$$$

    Gut busting funny how economically naive our leftist buds are.. These folks consume crap for analysis where a gift to a favored constituency is counted against "big oil"..

    PLEASE ONE-PERCENTER --- you go MARCH right up to the Capitol Mall AND DEMAND that those EVIL REPUBLICANS and DEMOCRATS KILL aid to Low Income Homes for Energy.

    And make sure those dirty old farmers aren't in the pockets of "big oil"..


    Hysterical fun.. I tell ya...
