NASDAQ reported that the North American natural gas prices likely to remain at depressed levels throughout the fall and may also decline even further as hurricane season draws to a close.

The market news is quoted as saying:

The cleanest-burning fossil fuel, natural gas should continue to win market share from coal, a transition hastened by stricter restrictions on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

Although this transition would reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions, the amount of infrastructure investment needed to support widespread adoption of NGVs in the US is a significant challenge that will take some time to overcome.
