Where do you get are natural gas from?
Natural gas is found deep below the earth's surface. Much of it is contained in shale rock. A modern technology called fracking (hydraulic fracturing), which uses high water pressure to break up the shale rock is used to recover natural gas. The natural gas is then refined and used. The United States has an abundance of natural gas that can be recovered. Natural gas is currently used to heat our homes and run home appliances. It has recently been used to power transit buses and trucks. Natural gas buses are becoming very prevalent. Natural gas vehicles are becoming much more common as natural gas is the cleanest burning fuel in existence today.
