by AP posted Oct 2 2012 3:31PM


     RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia has signed agreements with two private fuel companies and joined in a multi-state effort to convert the state's vehicle fleet to alternative fuels.
 
     Gov. Bob McDonnell announced the development Tuesday to launch his conference on energy in Richmond. It runs through Thursday.
 
     The agreements are with Clean Energy and Blossman Gas. They were among 14 solicitations for a public-private partnership to provide alternative fuel infrastructure and vehicle conversions to the state.
 
     The multi-state agreement involves a coalition of 14 states working with vehicle manufacturers to drive down the costs of alternative fuel vehicles.
 
     McDonnell says the state has thousands of vehicles powered primarily by gasoline or diesel fuels blended from foreign oil. He says the agreements will ease the state's dependence on foreign oil and reduce pollution.
