Wondering your thoughts on CNG vehicles. I recently worked for a company and drove a CNG vehicle for nearly 2 years. I was skeptical at first, but I think it could be a viable candidate for an alternative fuel. The biggest drawback to it I could see is the availability of pumping stations.
Now, I don't mean a replacement for gasoline, but simply an alternative. Here's my idea, and feel free to call me an idiot if it's dumb.
Tax incentives/breaks whatever for companies with fleet vehicles (think cable/phone companies, power companies, gas, etc) to convert their fleets to CNG. Maybe a one time tax waiver on the purchase of a new fleet vehicle if it's CNG? Kinda spitballin here, I kinda just thought of it after reading a post in another thread a little while ago.
I would imagine that country wide, fleet vehicles consume a considerable amount of fuel. My thought is that reducing the demand would increase the supply, leading to lower prices at the pump.
What do you guys think? Could it possibly work? Or is it a dumb idea? Theoretically it seems like it to me, but am I missing an unintended consequence?
