You buy, operate or lease a fleet. You have a choice of vehicles. Today, you have a choice of fuels.
Companies are squeezing every last drop of blood out of their fleets to reduce the cost to move people and goods. Fuel is typically ¼ to 1/3 of the cost to operate a fleet. You cannot have any greater positive effect on reducing your fleet costs than you can by transitioning to CNG where 30% to 50% savings are seen across the country.
A compressed (or absorbed) gaseous fuel market leads us to a hydrogen economy. Who knows if that will ever be commercialized. Today, natural gas is the cheapest way to make hydrogen, through steam methane reforming. By building a gaseous transportation fuel network, we are paving the way to what scientists have long said is the ultimate fuel…hydrogen. Hydrogen is the most abundant atom in the universe, but making, containing and transforming it to energy for transportation is simply not commercially-viable today. Tomorrow…who knows? CNG will bridge the next 100 years if necessary.

Exploration, Production, Transmission & Distribution
The U.S.A. has been relying on crude oil for almost all of our transportation fuel for 130 years. In recent decades, we’ve been adding ethanol, which mostly comes from corn.
It was U.S.A. technology, investment and consulting that built the Middle Eastern oil monopoly. Today, world oil production (crude oil pulled out of the ground or from the sea and shipped for further processing) is approximately 92 million barrels per day and OPEC produces approximately 30 million barrels per day or 1/3 of the total world production.
Natural Gas Defined
Natural gas is an odorless, nontoxic, gaseous mixture of hydrocarbons, mostly (typically 85% to 95%) methane (CH4) and accounts for about one-fourth of the energy used in the U.S.A. The mixture of hydrocarbon gases occurs with petroleum deposits deep in the earth. This mixture may contain varying quantities of ethane, propane, butane, pentane, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and other gases including helium in some sources. It is used by itself or mixed with various enrichments of oxygen as a fuel, used as the most common and cheapest way to produce hydrogen, or used in the manufacture of organic compounds.
Uses of Natural Gas
According to the U.S.A. Energy Information Administration (EIA), almost half of the natural gas used in the U.S.A. goes to residential and commercial uses such as heating and cooking. Another 40% goes to electric power production. Less than one-half of one percent is used in vehicle fuel. Although natural gas is a clean-burning alternative fuel that has long been used to power NGV, less than ½ of 1% is used for transportation fuel.
Comparing Natural Gas to Other Fuels
As an automobile fuel, CNG is cleaner than gasoline and diesel. It emits approximately 29% less carbon dioxide than oil and other hydrocarbon fuels.
Natural Gas Safety
Natural Gas is an environmentally clean, low-cost, plentiful, domestically-produced fuel that is used in more than 70,000,000 homes and businesses throughout the U.S.A. and is rapidly growing as a transportation fuel for motor vehicles. But is it really safe as a vehicle fuel?
Why Natural Gas for Transportation
You’ve heard it a lot recently, the U.S.A. urgently needs a new alternative energy policy with solutions to reduce our dependency on foreign sources of energy and implement an alternative transportation fuel that is reliable, safe, and affordable. In fact, this has been the political cry of all eight presidents since Richard Nixon, yet none of them has produced a solid energy policy. As of the end of 2013, our country imports approximately $350,000,000,000 per year in crude oil (that’s $350 BILLION DOLLARS). This is more than double what the federal government spends on education.
