VNG Chief Operating Officer Robert Friedman said, "Despite rising U.S. oil production, petroleum dependence is still a huge threat to American consumers and businesses, and a constant drumbeat of record-breaking global temperatures and extreme weather events has underscored the urgency of addressing climate change in the near term, not the long term. Our mission at VNG is to help our country move to a more sustainable, secure transportation fueling mix today by leveraging the unique abilities of NGVs to contribute to these goals – particularly for gas-guzzling pickups, light trucks, and older vehicles already on our roads."
John Atkinson, VNG's Director of Regulatory and Public Affairs, added, "As a leading developer of light-duty oriented CNG fueling stations at existing gasoline stations, VNG is eager to work with regulators to bring greater recognition of these benefits in the final TAR – as well as stronger incentives to promote them in the subsequent rulemaking process."
