On June 2, 2016, Oklahoma Natural Gas hosted the official media stop of the "National CNG Road Rally." The two-week Road Rally stretched from Long Beach, California to Washington, D.C., promoting compressed natural gas (CNG) across the United States through local and national community and media support.

The event featured expert speakers in regards to CNG policies and expansion. Matt Godlewski, President of NGVAmerica spoke about the nation-wide expansion to CNG vehicles and how their organization is pushing for more states to embrace CNG like Oklahoma. Oklahoma Secretary of State Chris Benge spoke about how Oklahoma made a commitment to CNG last decade to help make Oklahoma a leading producer in CNG. Finally, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin touched on her experience in pushing CNG and how she relayed that work to President Obama and the Automotive Industry. 

Oklahoma Natural Gas brought their game-day trailer and provided the crowd of over one hundred people chips, water, cookies and hot dogs made with CNG.
