There is a new fuel on the block in part of Bradford County, the kind of fuel that can be used in a car or truck. A mini mart in the Towanda area cut the ribbon on new compressed natural gas pumps. Compressed natural gas, or CNG, is an alternative to the gasoline many of us have been using for ages. It comes from drilling in the Marcellus Shale and is now being delivered right to the pumps at the Dandy Mini Mart near Towanda. Instead of pumping gasoline from the pumps, it is compressed natural gas meant to fuel cars and trucks designed for it.

It's about time! Gasoline will be going the way as the 8-Track, vinyl records, cassette tape, VHS and film based camera. It's called progress. Now let's get on with it!

If significant numbers of on NG vehicles are sold (ie 10%) the demand for NG will drive up the price and then there will be no economic benefit to NG vehicles and it will cost more to heat homes in the winter
So be careful what you ask for
Same problem with diesel, increase demand equals increase in price, and diesel already sells for 50 cent more that gasoline

It isn't that natural gas as a fossil fuel source isn't important; you have to look at the infrastructure to get a firm grip on reality when it comes to trying to widely use natural gas as a fuel source for vehicles. Natural gas could be added to fuel stations, but it is going to cost, a lot to do. Without having natural gas a a large percentage of fuel stations, people will have to drive extra miles to fill up. Then there is the issue of the vehicle conversion cost. To me, the numbers do not spell success for natural gas in vehicles.
