The little research that I have done indicates that they are unavailable outside of California unless your a gov't entity trying to buy a fleet.
My guess is that the big oil lobby does not want states to allow the average citizen the ability to purchase these things because you can refuel in your garage. This means you won't be buying that candy bar, big gulp & lottery tickets when you fill up in your garage....

One of the things I don't understand is why US car manufacturers don't make more NGVs. They can simply produce normal gasoline cars and have them retrofitted on the parking lot before being shipped out. They don't need to retool the factory at all. Many American fuel guzzlers imported to Europe are sold as a LPG or CNG retrofit by the importer.
