Why natural gas for transportation
Why Natural Gas for Transportation?


Costs average between $0.50- $1.00 less per gallon than gasoline


Cleanest burning fuel available

Reduces GHG emissions by up to 30% and NOx emissions by 85%


98% domestically produced

Gallon per gallon displacement of foreign oil

150 year supply

Economic considerations what percentage of your budget is related to fuel costs
Economic Considerations – What Percentage of Your Budget is Related to Fuel Costs?

According to the US Energy Information Administration the spread between natural gas and petroleum is forecasted to increase in the coming years; fleets using natural gas will have a competitive advantage over those using gasoline.

Pricing is based on gasoline gallon equivalent of CNG (inclusive of commodity and compression fee)

Ngvs produce significantly less smog and soot
