"When these non-economic advantages are added to the developing economic trends favoring natural gas transportation, the result is a very attractive scenario for investors.

Natural gas lights the way and it makes sense that large energy consumers are looking for ways to use less expensive fuel alternative.

CNG I think is a much easier sell than EVs. More affordable, for most, and longer ranges.

I hope everyone gets the big picture on natural gas. Once there is more demand the price WILL go up. This has always happened.
