NPGA asks Congress to extend alternative fuel tax provisions

December 17, 2012 By    

NPGA has urged Congress to extend tax credits for alternative fuels, underscoring its importance to the country’s energy security and employment objectives.

“Virtually all consumer propane used in the United States is produced in North America from North American resources,” Richard Roldan, NPGA president and CEO, wrote in a letter to the House of Representatives’ Ways and Means Committee. “This, of course, decreases our dependence on foreign oil. With most propane now produced from natural gas, the growing U.S. natural gas supply means a wealth of propane supply in the coming years.”

NPGA recently joined five other alternative fuel groups in calling on Congress to establish an “all-of-the-above” energy policy by accelerating adoption of oil alternatives in transportation.
