Local comments on natural gas use
I read with interest the Daily Leader front page story (Dec. 28. 2012) concerning CNG and LNG (Natural Gas) as alternative fuels for transportation. One local firm, Hunt, Guillot and Associates (HGA), is significantly involved in developing CNG fueling stations in Louisiana and several other states.
The driving forces behind the growth of natural gas as a vehicle fuel in the U.S. are price, availability, environment and national security. Natural gas is the only alternate fuel that costs less than the fuel it replaces.
