A summit calling for conversion of more vehicles to compressed natural gas is held in Tulsa.The goal of the summit is to provide information about the advantages of using CNG in the hope more companies will decide to convert their fleets. There are also individuals at the summit like Craig Dixon, who is an advocate of using CNG in personal vehicles. He says he’s saved thousands of dollars in the three years he’s been using a CNG powered Honda Civic. Also in attendance is Marcus James, fleet maintenance manager for Tulsa Public Schools. He says T-P-S has nearly 140 buses that run on CNG and there are plans for more.

Governor Fallin, who is calling for more use of compressed natural gas, was keynote speaker. More than 260 government and business leaders attended.
