Top 10 Reasons Natural Gas Looks Promising for Trucking Roughly $1.00 (LNG) - $1.50 (CNG) cheaper per DGE Domestically-produced Vast supplies readily available Future cost projections remain low Fuel surcharges roller-coaster Manufacturers have/will have product lines Fleet requests for natural gas trucks is on the rise Infrastructure build-out continues OEM competition will decrease equipment costs and fleet competition will increase market penetration of equipment Lower emissions
Natural Gas Use in Transportation is Not a New Concept
First U.S. Well Dug in 1821 William Hart dug the first well specifically to produce natural gas in the U.S. in the Village of Fredonia on the banks of Canadaway Creek in Chautauqua County, NY. It was 27 feet deep, excavated with shovels by hand, and its gas pipeline was hollowed- out logs sealed with tar and rags.
Issues for States Fracking bans Vehicle weight exemptions State tax incentives and grants Truck safety concerns Road degradation Taxation of natural gas Note: fracking-associated hauls provide significant economic boon for tank truck industry (≈2000 hauls per fracked well)
