State governments, as well as many regional and local governments, offer incentives for buying and operating natural gas vehicles. These incentives include tax deductions/credits, reduced license fees, reduced vehicle sale taxes, lower registration fees. Some states, such as California and Arizona, permit certain alternative fuel vehicles to operate in high occupancy vehicle lanes during peak rush-hour periods. These programs may cover all alternative fuel vehicles or may provide incentives for a specific fuel.
