Fla. natural gas vehicle fueling stations planned

Consumption

A Florida-based firm has opened a natural gas vehicle fueling station in Tallahassee and has plans for 15 more across the state and three in Georgia.

Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, the state’s top energy official, was on hand for Tuesday’s opening of Netpetro’s Tallahassee station.

The Leon County School District is partnering with the firm. The district has 44 natural gas powered school buses and plans to convert its entire 206-bus fleet to the cleaner and lower cost fuel.

Other government agencies and private vehicles also can use the station.

Netpetro plans stations for Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Fort Pierce, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Key Largo, Miami, Ocala, Orlando, Pensacola, Sarasota, St. Augustine, Tampa and West Palm Beach.

In Georgia, it is planning stations for Atlanta, Macon and Savannah.

    We need a choice at the pump. This is one good option. It is time to end the oil monopoly on transportation fuel. Bring on the electric, flex-fuel, hybrid, CNG, LNG and hydrogen fueled vehicles.

    This is not a long term solution.

    Obama says there is a 100 year long supply of NG right now and new NG is being found all the time—how long term do you want your solutions to be?

    Good move. Pakistan has 3.1 million NGVs and USA has only 112,000.

    Build a NGV station every 10 miles and people will start buying those vehicles or even convert their existing vehicles to run on this fuel.

    Of late, I see many Taxis running on this fuel.

    See the worldwide stats.

    People, a few hundred NG stations mean nothing. There are over 100,000 gasoline stations in the US alone, and the number is shrinking. Do you really think that a new system will be built-out in a few years just because there is a NG bubble? I don’t.
