Expanding natural gas fueling in North America was the focus of TravelCenters of America President and CEO Thomas O’Brien at the ACT Expo in Washington D.C. Tuesday.
O’Brien says a natural gas revolution in this market is currently being prevented by three roadblocks.
Roadblock No. 1: Natural gas equipment costs more.
Roadblock No. 2: If demand for natural gas goes up, price will go with it.
Roadblock No.3: There’s little to no infrastructure “On cost of investment…everybody has heard ‘do the math’,” O’Brien says. “Nobody really cares anymore. We’ve deemed that the math is close enough.”
