Hickenlooper: Auto industry should make natural gas cars

DENVER – Gov. John Hickenlooper’s office said Friday that he and a dozen other governors have sent a letter urging leaders of 19 auto companies to make natural-gas vehicles.

The letter, sent this week, was part of a multi-state partnership initiated by Hickenlooper and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin last fall. The agreement promotes the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel.

“A bipartisan partnership between governors and auto manufacturers in the U.S. makes sense and has the potential to create new options for alternative fuel vehicles and transportation fuel diversity,” the letter reads. “Abundant, affordable, clean-burning natural gas presents a tremendous opportunity for America to realize an energy future using domestic resources to fuel our nation’s transportation needs.”

Other states participating in the push were Oklahoma, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Hickenlooper’s office also announced Friday that it would join the Colorado Municipal League in working with cities that want to add natural gas vehicles to their fleets.
