Tomblin Considering Converting State Fleet to Natural Gas

West Virginia’s newfound abundance of natural gas has the Governor looking into switching part of the state’s vehicle fleet from gasoline and diesel to natural gas. Governor Tomblin plans to order a cost-benefit analysis on the subject soon. 13 state governors have declared their support for converting their fleets and sent a signed letter to auto makers encouraging development of natural gas vehicles.

The last time West Virginia officially entertained the idea of fleet conversion was in the 1990’s.
