    I see a problem with this. If you have tons more cars on CNG, then use will go up, and prices will rise. Our heating costs will rise and negate any savings we have on fueling our vehicles. Not only that, but converting a vehicle costs thousands. How long does it take to get that money back in fuel savings, especially as prices rise on natural gas. Just a few short years ago, natural gas was under a buck a gallon, now it's around 1.50 or so depending on where you get it. In the late 90's I had a few diesel pickups and was paying half on fuel than gasoline, diesel trucks got to be more common, and users were using it for heating fuel and the prices skyrocketed past supreme gasoline. The same will happen with natural gas.

    If they want to cut emissions in the Salt Lake Valley, build a nuclear power plant, and build it so big that heating using natural gas is more expensive than electricity.
