Compressed Natural Gas and Liquefied Natural Gas
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) are second only to ethanol in terms of non-petroleum transport fuel consumption in the United States.
With a combined 236 million gallons of gasoline equivalent consumption in 2010, CNG and LNG are second only to ethanol in terms of non-petroleum transport fuel consumption in the United States. CNG and LNG are used mainly in fleet vehicles, which number about 120,000 in the United States. However, with the decrease in natural gas prices on the last few years, CNG and LNG offer a significant price advantage over gasoline and diesel, which is driving greater adoption. Although the value of CNG and LNG sales have not been estimated here, global and U.S. revenues based on the total installed cost of CNG and LNG fueling stations is provided in the Fuel Delivery subsegment.
