Official Summary

State Natural Gas Act of 2012 - Amends the Natural Gas Act to require the Secretary of Energy (DOE) to make grants available to states to independently carry out initiatives to promote the following purposes:
(1) the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel, and

Requires the Secretary to increase the grant amount above the minimum to reflect the potential of applications and plans to promote the purposes of this Act, taking into consideration:
(1) the relative amount of funds likely to be leveraged by initiatives described in the state plan,

(3) the degree that initiatives will be a bridge to private investment and sustainable market conditions, and
(4) the amount of funds invested in public and private investment in states in natural gas transportation and infrastructure.
