Top Ten Reasons to Consider CNG Fuel Vehicles In 2017
Will 2017 be the year of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicles? It seems increasingly likely. The list of reasons to invest in CNG fuel vehicles is growing every day, and the downsides are becoming ever-fewer. Here are some of the Benefits of Choosing CNG Fuel Vehicles:
- Low gasoline prices won't last forever. The currently-low prices are mostly due to geo-politics, not supply increases. When OPEC and other oil-producing nations tire of their trade war, prices could go up rapidly.
- CNG is more readily available. Compressed Natural Gas is spread fairly evenly around the world and generally requires less effort to obtain than crude oil. Low prices on CNG will likely remain stable.
- Pure price savings. Depending on local prices, CNG is up to 50% less expensive than gasoline on a per-mile basis. These savings can be extended by buying in bulk and installing your own fueling station.
- Easy-pass emissions standards. Since CNG is far less polluting than gasoline, CNG fuel vehicles pass even the strictest of local environmental regulations with ease. Fueling stations are becoming more common. Previously one of the biggest arguments against CNG was lack of fueling stations, but there are now hundreds of CNG fuel stations across the US with more being installed every month.
