More Back to the Future
First in the modern era that is. There were natural gas stations around town open to the public in the not too distant past. I take they all went away over the last decade or so. So.. how many non-fleet natural gas vehicles are there actually in the Pittsburgh region these days I wonder? Anyone? The news story was constrained to quote how many natural gas Honda's there are in the entire US, no mention of the local number. I knew one person who had a personal natural gas car in town once.
There was some other news story I can't find about folks are pushing a cross-Pennsylvania network of natural gas fueling stations. Out in Washington State they have a similar plan just announced for a network of electric charging stations for cars.
Random neuron... Ten years ago this week: US average regular conventional gasoline cost $1.35 a gallon at retail. With those fuelperks gasoline probably felt like it was free, or would if it ever came back down to that.
