Compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles are on the move in the Northeast. Fueling with natural gas provides an important alternate fuel source for transportation, and helps reduce air pollution emissions from cars, trucks and buses. CNG vehicles (also known as NGVs, or natural gas vehicles) today represent 30% of all alternatively-fueled vehicles on the road in the U.S.

The Northeast U.S. is actively promoting alternatively-fueled vehicles to help address the region's air pollution challenges as well as providing an option to gasoline-fueled vehicles.

Typical dedicated NGVscan reduce exhaust emissions of:

 
  • Carbon monoxide (CO) by 70%
  • Non-methane organic gas (NMOG) by 87 percent
  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx) by 87 percent
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2) by almost 20 percent below those of gasoline vehicles
  • NGV America reports that "Tests have shown that NGVs produce up to 20 percent less greenhouse gas emissions than comparable gasoline vehicles and up to 15 percent less than comparable diesel vehicles."

    The links below provide further information on CNG vehicles and fueling stations in New England, New York and New Jersey. There are about 100 CNG fueling stations in the region and more than 20,000 CNG vehicles are on the road in the region.

    New York State has a web site link that provides much useful information on clean-fueled vehicle programs in the state. It can be found here: http://www.ogs.state.ny.us/SupportServices/aboutus/cleanfuels/default.html
