Gasoline price jump helps Honda sell out Civic GX

From edmunds:

It's been a step-child of the green car movement for a decade now, but Honda's Civic GX is finally getting some notice.

As gasoline prices soar, demand for the company's natural-gas powered emissions fighter is soaring too.

Dealers are actually building waiting lists in California and New York, the two states where the car is sold to regular consumers.

Allocations are sold out through June, and Honda is considering nearly doubling production to 2,000 a year, with the possibility of an even bigger boost if market demand continues to build, a company insider said.

Those aren't earth-shaking numbers, but they reflect quite a jump from the GX's first eight years on the market, when sales averaged a mere 698 cars a year.
While I know this will make rick happy, I wonder how many others would look to CNG for their fuel source? It's definitely nice being able to fill up at home and is cleaner burning...

What do we think?
