While I think that there is little that can be done to speed the process, electric will be the way to go eventually.

Perhaps - though it's far from the low hanging fruit. Indeed, I am increasingly skeptical that you're going to see that any time soon, absent a marked breakthrough in battery technology. The economics just aren't there for personal vehicles right now, and probably won't be for quite a while. Meanwhile, in addition to the small vehicle segment, you're actually seeing some non-trivial NG fleet truck adoption. So it may be that not only the short-term, but also the intermediate-term, future of vehicles in the U.S. continuing to be almost entirely ICE.
