  • 1. NATURAL GAS WORKS FOR CITIES RS YO MA OR SF EA ID
  • 2. June 10, 2010 Dear Friends, America’s Natural Gas Alliance is pleased to join you for the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ 78th annual meeting in beautiful Oklahoma City. We know how important mayors are to improving and strengthening our communities, and natural gas can play a big role in achieving that mission. In this publication, you’ll find examples of how natural gas is helping cities across the country save money and reduce emissions. Natural gas vehicles—buses, refuse and heavy-duty trucks, passenger vehicles and delivery vans—are increasingly being used in cities and towns from coast to coast to improve air quality and save money. We hope you will find these ideas useful and take them back to your own communities. By using more natural gas we can immediately create new clean energy jobs, reduce our dependence on foreign oil and pave the way for a cleaner energy future for our country—and for our cities and towns. Enjoy the conference. I am pleased to be joining you in Oklahoma City and look forward to working with you in the future to help drive change across America through greater use of clean, abundant and American natural gas. Sincerely, Regina Hopper President and CEO, America’s Natural Gas Alliance
