National road rally launched to address benefits of natural gas vehicles

November 8, 2018. NGVAmerica teamed up with the American Gas Association and the American Public Gas Association to launch the 2018 Drive Nat Gas Coast-to-Coast NGV Road Rally. This four week, 5,000+ mile, 14 stop cross country excursion highlights the benefits of natural gas use in transportation.

   “Clean air starts with clean vehicles, and the cleanest heavy-duty engine in the world runs on natural gas,” said Dan Gage, President of NGVAmerica. “We are fortunate to have partners here locally who understand the importance of implementing affordable natural gas solutions in everyday life. And we ask local elected officials and policy makers to join with them to promote and increase natural gas use in transportation that will result in protecting our environment, cleaning our air, and expanding our economy.”
