A Reliable Fuel Price or a Volatile Fuel Price?

Question for fleet owners and operators: Would you rather operate your fleet burning a fuel whose price per gallon you can accurately predict or one that has massive volatility and whose price is subject to the self-interest of foreign nations?

This is one of the main distinction when comparing CNG and Diesel. Don’t take our word for it, check out the prices recorded by the Dept. of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center over the past decade.

CNG’s price (in blue) remains flat thanks to domestic natural gas production while, conversely, Diesel and Propane (in black & red) spike up and down making both very hard to reliably predict.

With CNG, a fleet can “know” its fuel costs and sign long term fueling contracts with assurance that the price will be consistent. With Diesel and Propane…not so much…

NGV Journal: First high-speed CNG station opens in the Permian Basin

It is always exciting to see Freedom CNG featured on NGVJournal.com especially when the article is about our opening a new station.

The new Permian Basin fueling site will be open 24 hours a day and is located between Midland & Odessa off I-20 SE of the Midland Airport.

One of the best features about our the station is that it has a flow rate of 12 Gallons per minute which  makes it is the fastest CNG fueling station in the Permian Basin!

“Eight CNG-powered trucks can fill up at our new station simultaneously, without waiting in line, in as little as eight minutes compared to fueling times of over 30 minutes at other stations,” explained Freedom CNG President Bill Winters. “That’s a big difference to a trucker who is trying to maximize the number of loads he can haul per day.”

I could not have said it better myself! Come by for a visit sometime or please call or email us if you would like more information.
