Also asked, will gas cars be banned?

Last week, federal legislation was proposed in both the House of Representatives and the Senate that could radically shift the way the U.S. tackles its climate crisis. The Zero-Emission Vehicles Act would eliminate the sale of gas-powered passenger cars in the U.S. by 2040.

Similarly, will LPG cars be banned in 2040? The ban, in 2035 not 2040, is on sales of new cars with internal combustion engines. It will still be legal to own and run an existing ICE vehicle, which would include those converted to LPG. Whether you will still be able to purchase LPG is another matter.
