According to Fallin’s plan, introducing CNG vehicles in the state fleets will involve many benefits. First, an affordable NGV will save taxpayer dollars in fuel costs. Second, the influx of thousands of state-owned NGVs will encourage the creation of natural gas infrastructure –such as CNG fueling stations– in the private sector, which in turn will benefit consumers who choose to purchase natural gas powered cars for individual use.
“By supporting natural gas production and consumption, we are supporting an environmentally friendly, American energy source. Not only will that bolster our economic security by creating jobs, it will improve our national security by helping to wean the United States off of foreign oil,” added Fallin.
