Natural gas fuel costs up to $1.50 less per gallon than gasoline or diesel, depending on local market conditions. The use of natural gas fuel not only reduces operating costs for vehicles, but also reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 30% in light-duty vehicles and 23% in medium to heavy-duty vehicles. In addition, nearly all natural gas consumed in North America is produced domestically.

The Road Ahead

An insider's look at what this means for the Alternative Fuel Industry from Clean Energy's President and CEO, Andrew J. Littlefair:

It is apparent why natural gas is center-stage at this year's Alternative Clean Transportation Expo—it is proving to be the alternative fuel of choice by many of the nation's leading fleets. The first of Kroger's LNG fleet deployment announced yesterday joins the growing chorus of fleets making the natural gas switch with Clean Energy. From UPS and Garden City Sanitation's continued nat gas rollout to ATN's mobile LNG fueling, we're excited to work with our customers on CNG, LNG and Redeem RNG fueling solutions that meet their needs.
