I agree. CNG is a viable solution for local travels only. Keep gasoline for longer range driving and diesel for heavy duty incl large haulers (pickups) etc.
BUT We still need to drill until the infrastructure for CNG is available. We also need nukes, coal, and wind.
If congress would tell the greenies that they cannot block newest technology efforts* in any of these remedies, it would be less than 5 years to independence.
Oil drilling can be done cleanly, safely and cost effectively and never harm a seal, bear or whatever. I just traveled through Wyoming and saw hundreds of cattle and Pronghorn Antelope co-existing with current wells/refineries.
And in spite of repeated efforts, I have yet to get reputable, peer reviewed scientific studies showing any dispositive link to man made warming!
* Newest technology being the safest, cleanest, most cost effective in any technology. For example, nuclear plants can be built very safe, clean and cost effective right now using 20 year old methods.
Wretched excess is just barely enough.
