Despite Push For EVs, Natural Gas Vehicles Gaining Popularity.
The Chicago Tribune (7/30, Wernau) reports that despite Administration attempts to support electric vehicles, "a undersubsidized horde of natural gas vehicles is catching on with everyday consumers despite a paucity of marketing or fueling infrastructure," thanks to low natural gas prices. Pike Research's Smart Transportation service predicts that by the end of 2012, "123,600 natural gas vehicles will be on US roads, compared with 65,500 plug-in vehicles." A number of "experts wonder whether the US chose the wrong technology to support."
