Natural gas is the cleanest-burning fossil fuel - in fact, it's twice as clean as coal or oil. It also produces fewer pollutants like sulfur dioxide, a cause of acid rain. Qualities like this make natural gas a valuable energy source right now and for our future. It's a smart way to improve our air quality while meeting our energy needs - and the reserves are plentiful right here in Pennsylvania.
Unlike oil, natural gas is a uniquely American energy source. Not only can we help break our dependence on other countries for oil, but natural gas can fuel the next generation of vehicles. Millions of vehicles across the globe are powered by natural gas, yet only a very small portion of those vehicles are in the United States. We can ensure cleaner air - especially in urban areas where we rely on buses - by switching to natural gas.
