ARLINGTON, VA – The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC), the coordinator of National AFV Day Odyssey, released results from a national survey that indicates Americans personally believe that developing alternative fuel sources for cars, trucks, SUVs, and buses is very important to them. The survey results were presented at the National Alternative Fuel Vehicle Day Odyssey 2006 Media Kick-off Event in Arlington, Va., on Oct. 12.
