Natural Gas Vehicles Group Asks Congress for Fuel Tax Credit Extension

Transport Topics reported: Daniel Gage, president of National Gas Vehicles for America, asked lawmakers March 14 for a five-year extension of alternative fuel tax credits and the alternative fueling infrastructure credit. The alternative fuel tax credit offers a credit of 50 cents per gallon on alternative fuels such as natural gas, liquefied hydrogen and propane. The alternative fueling infrastructure credit offers a tax credit of 30% for natural gas fueling equipment. Both of these credits expired Dec. 31, 2017. NGVA represents various companies, government agencies and environmental groups and supports the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel. Gage stated that vehicles that run on natural gas with Zero Emissions Equivalent technology produce 90% fewer nitrogen oxide emissions. Gage urged lawmakers to extend these credits into 2022, which he said would offset the cost of new, cleaner trucks and accelerate investment for businesses.
