Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is an abundant clean burning alternative to gasoline and other transportation fuel. There are approximately 110,000 natural gas vehicles currently operating in the United States and 12,000,000 worldwide.
Why Compressed Natural Gas?
CNG is Clean
Compressed Natural Gas vehicles improve air quality through reduced emissions, including:
- 20-30% less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions
- 70-90% less carbon monoxide (CO) emissions
- 75-95% less nitrogen oxide(NOx) emissions
- 90% reduction in particle matter (PM) emissions
CNG is Affordable
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is an affordable alternative when compared to gasoline or diesel fuel. CNG can reduce fuel costs by more than 50% while delivering the same power and performance. Natural gas prices are independent of imported oil prices and are not affected by refinery limitations or interruptions.
Local supplies of natural gas are used when producing compressed natural gas (CNG) which in turn supports local jobs, paying gas royalties to local property owners, stimulating our local economy and reducing the amount of American dollars being sent to foreign countries to buy oil.
