On the first of the year, Florida began its program to incentivize the purchase of natural gas fleet vehicles. The rebate program reflects just one of the ways that natural gas is changing life in Florida.

In this video, Fool.com contributor Aimee Duffy talks about a small deal in the town of Wellington to replace diesel burning garbage trucks with WasteManagement's (NYSE:WM) natural gas trucks, explaining to Tyler Crowe what this means from a cost-savings perspective for Florida companies. She also goes on to explain why companies like Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (NYSE:KMP), Spectra Energy (NYSE:SE) and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) that are responsible for supplying Florida with its natural gas are good ideas for investors right now.
