General Notes: A dash ("-") in the notes column indicates there is no available data for that location. "Compressed natural gas" is a type of natural gas - natural gas is a domestically abundant gaseous fuel that can have significant fuel cost advantages over gasoline and diesel fuel. According to the Department of Energy, "Compressed natural gas (CNG) is produced by compressing natural gas to less than 1% of its volume at standard atmospheric pressure. To provide adequate driving range, CNG is stored onboard a vehicle in a compressed gaseous state within fuel tanks at a pressure of 3,000 to 3,600 pounds per square inch. It is used in light-, medium-, and heavy-duty applications. A CNG-powered vehicle gets about the same fuel economy as a conventional gasoline vehicle on a GGE basis."
