How about paying one dollar and ninety-nine cents per gallon to fill up your tank? A natural gas company in Texas is celebrating the grand opening of a natural gas station where that price is real. With a tremendous amount of natural gas available in the Brazos Valley, it is one of the big reasons CNG 4 America chose to install these pumps here.
"This is right in the middle of the triangle, and it allows people to cross the triangle and get natural gas as they come across the middle." said Bob Baldwin, the President of CNG 4 America. Baldwin says his company has been working to open the station for about four years. After construction started in this past fall, CNG's dream is now a reality.
Baldwin noted, "You can fuel your car here: pick-up truck, van, and even semi's. This particular one is for a semis, as it goes right through a semi lane." A lot of company fleets are switching to natural gas to save money.. Either buying new vehicles or converting their current ones to take the fuel. Most all natural gas vehicle conversions are bi- fuel, meaning that literally with the flip of a switch, you can change from running your vehicle on gas, to running it on natural gas.
CNG hopes people will take advantage of this new natural gas station. Baldwin said, "It's going to be a huge changeover, but it's a good change." People will be saving at the pump and burning cleaner fuel.
