Moving to natural gas vehicles is the most immediate way to wean ourselves from an oil addiction that puts our country at political and economic risk. The pace of global warming demands that we reduce our greenhouse gas emissions now. People in our most polluted communities need cleaner air now. Natural gas vehicles are already helping—and they're doing it now.
NGVs are among the cleanest commercially available vehicles. They provide immediate solutions to California’s air pollution and global warming problems, delivering lower greenhouse gas and pollutant emissions than petroleum-fueled vehicles. And they can run on the lowest-carbon fuel available: renewable natural gas. Learn more about how NGVs reduce pollution.
To eliminate the economic risks associated with our dependence on petroleum, we must diversify our fuel supply. Natural gas has many advantages as a transportation fuel: it’s cost-effective; it’s domestically produced; there’s an ample supply in North America; and it can be produced from renewable sources.

NGV options include a full range of heavy-duty trucks, transit buses, refuse trucks, school buses, shuttle vans, delivery vehicles, pickup trucks and passenger cars. All provide performance comparable to diesel and gasoline vehicles. Learn more.
California had nearly 600 natural gas stations at the beginning of 2012, with more than one-quarter providing public access—and the number keeps growing. Learn more.
