What would happen if tomorrow, 25% of all US vehicles used CNG instead of gas???











Think......










What does he need for his core voting group???










Where does the wealth he wants to spead come from???






If the Gubment lost 25% of their gas taxes for their entitlement programs, do you think they would cut their spending, or just sock the taxes on NG???

The oil companies are making record profits, and paying record tax revenues. Where will they make up for this tax loss???

It won't be by cutting welfare, that's for sure!

    Good point. I'd guess they would make up new taxes like insanely high carbon tax. I honestly wouldn't be supprised to see a "breathing tax". Could also quite possibly see an income tax hike

    NG is cheap now compared to gas which makes a NG car desirable. One of the reasons it's cheaper is that it isn't taxed as bad as gasoline. I'm willing to bet if NG did start to make a dent in the gas monopoly, that would change....

    Ya got that right Quinian, Our US Government, can come up with some pretty innovative ways of introducing new taxes. The average US tax-payer doesn't even realize it until its too late. The wife and I used to sit around and dream up silly propostours ways the US government could tax us. It was fun. OOOOHHHHHHHH I better shut-up, I don't want to give the US government any hints!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:rotflmao:
    TAXATION without REPRESENTATION,,,,,, uuummmm, the very same issue that helped spawned the US Revolutionary War.

    Thats a good discussion point, where will the make-up tax come from? It would have to come from NG. I understand that over half of the price of a gallon of gasoline is some type of tax, always has been always will be.

    New York City had converted many City buses over to CNG many years before I had even heard the name Obama, this is nothing new, and if it is someones "DREAM" Obama can take no credit for it, using propane and CNG to power motor vehicles has been in the works as long as I can remember.
