Utilizing CNG can save 40% of fuel costs from running on gasoline and 54% of fuel costs from running on diesel. Compressed Natural Gas can also be locked in or capped for up to five years out in time, allowing fleets to budget long term. Try that with diesel fuel or gasoline!
2. Domestic Production and Abundance CNG is domestically produced in the US. With the advent of new technology, the US has been able to locate vast quantities of natural gas sources that were previously unknown. Even while our demand increases in the US, newly discovered supply is increasing faster than we are using it, proving the abundance of CNG within our own country.
3. Price Stability
CNG is, and has been historically, one of the top stabilized fuel sources in the US. While the price of gasoline has steadily increased, the price of CNG has actually decreased over the last decade. Source: eia.gov
4. Emission Reductions
CNG is a significantly cleaner-burning fuel that produces considerably less emissions than gasoline or diesel. Converting a gasoline or diesel vehicle to operate on natural gas provides the following reductions in exhaust emissions.
