Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is an available alternative to gasoline and diesel fuel. It is made by compressing natural gas to less than 1-percent of its volume at standard atmospheric pressure. CNG has been around for many years, but is becoming more popular today because of the uncertainty of oil from foreign countries and its environmental benefits.
CNG has many assets that make it an appealing transportation fuel:
- CNG fuel is clean. It can reduce carbon dioxide emissions up to 30-percent and toxic pollutants by up to 90-percent.
- Natural gas is abundant. According to new findings, the U.S. has enough natural gas to last for more than 120 years.
- Natural gas is affordable. On average, natural gas is 40-50-percent less expensive than gasoline.
- Natural gas is American. Unlike oil, America has no need to import natural gas. New natural gas reserves are discovered everyday right here in the U.S.
