The nation’s transportation system is largely reliant on a single fuel source – petroleum – which is often subject to supply disruptions caused by natural and man-made disasters. Having a diverse set of fuels, vehicles, and other transportation options will lead to greater resilience of our transportation system. To support these efforts, NASEO has created a series of resources designed to aid State Energy Offices and other emergency management entities in examining the potential costs, benefits, and interdependencies associated with diversifying their fleets, reducing dependence on petroleum, and investing in electric, natural gas, propane, and biodiesel vehicles and infrastructure in support of energy security.
