Honda is now going to allow customers who live in Utah, Oklahoma, California and New York to purchase the natural gas powered Civic GX from authorized dealers. Because the emissions put off by the Civic GX are so low, buyers can qualify for $4,000 worth of federal tax credits as the government continues to promote new fueling infrastructures and clean, alternative fuel vehicles.
