It is projected by the U.S. government that the natural gas price bandwidth will stay relatively moderate over the coming years, given the size of the domestic supply resource base.

The U.S. Department of Energy Alternative Fuels Data Center maintains a database on comparative costs of transportation fuels. You can find the data comparison here:

For these reasons and more, natural gas vehicles offer great opportunities to the Northeast and the U.S. market.
