Did you know there are more than 15 million natural gas vehicles on the road worldwide? Of those 15 million, only 140,000 are in the United States. At Frito-Lay, we are continuing to grow our fleet of compressed natural gas tractor-trucks. Our current goal to have 333 trucks on the road by the end of 2014 to eliminate more than 13,000 metric tons of carbon emissions – that’s the equivalent of more than 1,800 cars! Of course, if we want to reach this goal we also need to make sure our drivers have a place to fill up. That’s why today we were proud to help open a new compressed natural gas fueling station in Dallas. The station is open to the public and will provide fast-fill CNG fueling for our trucks as well as other CNG vehicles. As the anchor tenant, Frito-Lay has promised to purchase a base volume over a five-year period as the station builds a strong customer base.
