CNG from Sea to Shining Sea Road Rally Hits the Road in Long Beach
The “CNG from Sea to Shining Sea Road Rally,” a cross-country road rally run entirely on natural gas, set off in Long Beach, California, with a kick-off ceremony at the Long Beach Gas and Oil fueling station. The purpose of the 3,144-mi. rally is to inform and educate the American public to the benefits of natural gas vehicles and to demonstrate the opportunities of today’s nationwide natural gas fueling network.
“Long Beach fully supports the increased use of alternative fuels, and we’re excited to promote the viability of natural gas vehicles and infrastructure by sponsoring this rally,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “We know from experience that increased use of natural gas over other fossil fuels reduces greenhouse gas emissions and improves air quality.”
NGVAmerica, the American Gas Association (AGA), and the American Public Gas Association (APGA) are the presenting sponsors of the road rally, which will conclude June 10, 2016 in Washington, DC.
Organized by Pat Riley, General Manager, Gibson County Tennessee Utility District, the rally will feature 13 scheduled media stops in Long Beach, CA; Mesa, AZ; Albuquerque, NM; Oklahoma City, OK; Little Rock, AR; Memphis, TN; Trenton, TN; Dickson, TN; Sevierville, TN; Rock Hill, SC; Greenville, NC; Richmond, VA; and Washington, DC.
