“The main purpose of our campaign ‘A Drive to Inspire’ is to engage everyday Americans in the energy independence movement. Our car is a great example of what Americans can do when they put their minds to it,” they said on their website about the way to put an end to country’s dependence on foreign oil by boosting CNG as a green and effective fuel.
“This idea originated to raise attention about the unfairness of $4 a gallon gasoline, and now we’re dealing with the calamity in the Gulf,” Barfield said to local press recently as well as he is trying to prove that CNG is cheaper than gasoline and diesel.
A CNG tanker truck will follow them along Route 66 just in case they need fuel before getting a CNG station, so they avoid running out of gas. The team will stop in 10 cities during the trip.
McConville and Barfield will provide daily updates on the campaign official website, on Facebook and on Twitter.
