priced up to $1.50 or more per gallon lower than diesel (depending upon local
markets), the use of natural gas fuel reduces costs significantly for vehicle
and fleet owners, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 23 percent in
medium to heavy-duty vehicles. Additionally, natural gas is a secure North American
energy source, with 98 percent of the natural gas consumed produced in the U.S.
fuels over 25,200 vehicles at 257 strategic locations across the United States
and Canada with a broad customer base in the refuse, transit, trucking,
