Compressed natural gas (CNG) is an affordable alternative when compared to gasoline or diesel fuel. CNG can cut fuel costs by about 50% while delivering the same power and performance. In addition, with fuel emissions standards rising in cities more fleet organizations are seeing the value natural gas can add to their budgets.
Meanwhile, record U.S. natural gas production – a landmark study showed supply far exceeds government forecasts – and storage levels assure reasonable prices for the foreseeable future. In the past five years, natural gas prices have risen much less than many other commodities.
