CNG Earth Day

CNG fueling stations to offer 99 cents per gallon fill ups on Earth Day

For immediate release, Omaha, Neb. — On Earth Day, Friday, April 22, drivers of compressed natural gas (CNG) fueled vehicles can fill up their gas tanks for 99 cents per gasoline gallon equivalent at seven regional stations, including:

The public stations use Earth Day to raise awareness of CNG as an alternative transportation fuel to gasoline or diesel. In 2015, these Nebraska stations collectively displaced over 1,460,000 gallons of petroleum, which eliminated 2,675 tons of carbon dioxide emissions and displaced 33,250 barrels of oil.

There were over 100 new CNG stations opened since last Earth Day bringing the national total to 1,647 CNG fueling stations.

“With a network of fueling stations available, CNG is a viable option for fleet operators in our region,” said Kyle Bowman, NGV specialist for M.U.D. “Operators can bring real economic and environmental benefits to their businesses by using this clean, affordable, American fuel.”

M.U.D. operates more than 160 CNG fleet vehicles, including service vans, sedans, pick-up trucks, medium-duty service trucks, crew trucks and dump trucks.
