You can count on natural gas from cooking to outdoor living, and even getting around town. Not only is natural gas by far the cleanest-burning fossil fuel, with less carbon dioxide emissions than both coal and oil, but driving natural gas vehicles can reduce greenhouse emissions by up to 29%, compared with both gasoline and diesel vehicles.
Cost-Effective Alternative Transportation Fuel
As America's foundation fuel, natural gas is paving the way in breaking America's dependence on oil imports. Nowhere is this truer than the transportation sector, where natural gas is being put to use across the country to fuel a wide range of transportation options, from fleets and light-duty vehicles to heavy-duty trucking and off-road applications.
With concern over fluctuating gasoline prices, it’s no surprise many fleet owners are looking to compressed natural gas (CNG) as an alternative transportation fuel. It’s become increasingly convenient to switch with the number of nationwide CNG refueling stations growing 13% annually since 2009. Today, there are more than 1,000 CNG refueling stations nationwide and that number continues to grow steadily.
Safe at the pump and on the road
Vehicles powered by natural gas are as safe as conventional gasoline or diesel vehicles, and their pressurized tanks have been designed to withstand severe impact, temperature and environmental exposure.
