Public transportation across the country has been using CNG for decades, with about 12-15% of public transit buses in the U.S. currently running on natural gas (either CNG or LNG – liquefied natural gas). That number is growing, with nearly one in five buses on order today slated to run on natural gas. States with the highest consumption of natural gas for transportation are California, New York, Texas, Georgia, Massachusetts and Washington, D.C.
As gasoline prices continue to rise, American interest in CNG is rising, and with good reason – CNG costs about 50% less than gasoline or diesel, emits up to 90% fewer emissions than gasoline and there’s an abundant supply right here in America. So it’s clean, affordable, abundant, and American. The more major automakers manufacture new CNG vehicles at home the more American consumers can take them to the streets. Below is a map view of current CNG filling stations.
