State Policy Description
Policy Component information last updated July 30 2018
Increased installation of natural gas (NG) fueling infrastructure suffers the “chicken or the egg” problem: While consumer anxiety about the availability of fueling stations creates barriers to vehicle acquisition, the relatively low number of natural gas-fueled vehicles (NGVs) in operation creates uncertainties about return on investment for potential owners of fueling stations. For NGVs, the problem is more severe than for electric vehicles (EVs) as fueling equipment costs are much higher, and there are fewer original equipment manufacturers for NGVs than for EVs. There are a number of programs that states can adopt to support NG fueling infrastructure. For more information, see the full policy brief.
