Default Natural gas cars

I brought my Honda in for service and while I was waiting I was was checking out the Civic that runs on natural gas. The price wasn't unreasonable but I am wondering about a few things.

How much does it cost to get a home hook-up so you can fill it up at home?

Its a finite resource - so wouldn't we run out of natural gas just like we can run out of oil? So whats the benefit? Right now its cheaper but if supplies are limitied it won't be.

Why don't they make SUV's, minivans, or other larger vehicles that run on Natural gas? Or even electric for that matter - do they make an electric mini van or mid-size SUV yet?
