T. Boone Pickens Touts Natural Gas Act on Capitol Hill



T. Boone appeared before the Ways and Means Committee to tout the benefits of the Natural Gas Act (NAT GAS Act). Legislation that would provide incentives to get CNG & LNG big rigs and utility trucks on our roads.

The legislation would pursue a 5-year goal of 236,000 natural gas trucks (heavy, medium, and light duty) in operation which would displace an estimated 2 billion gallons of diesel annually and create 600,000 jobs - directly and indirectly.

When pressed regarding the pitfalls of picking energy winners and losers, Pickens quipped, "You're not picking winners, it's not a multiple choice question, there's only one resource that can move an 18 wheeler."

He is right, Tax foreign oil not domestic natural gas! I wonder if all those people who don't want to drill are going to feel the same way when gasoline hits $5 bucks a gallon?
