Clean Alternative To Gasoline And Other Fuels

What is Compressed Natural Gas?

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is an abundant clean burning alternative to gasoline and other transportation fuel. CNG is a readily available alternative to gasoline made by compressing natural gas to less than 1% of its volume at standard atmosphere pressure. There are approximately 110,000 natural gas vehicles currently operating in the United States and 12,000,000 worldwide.

CNG is Clean

CNG vehicles improve air quality through the following dramatic reductions in emissions:

  • Reduces carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 20% - 30%
  • Reduces carbon monoxide (CO) emissions by 70% - 90%
  • Reduces nitrogen oxide(NOx) emissions by 75% - 95%
  • Reduction of up to 90% of particle matter (PM) emissions
  • Reduces volatile organic compounds (VOC) by 89%

CNG is Affordable

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is an affordable alternative when compared to gasoline or diesel fuel. CNG can reduce fuel costs by more than 50% while delivering the same power and performance. Natural gas prices are independent of imported oil prices and are not affected by refinery limitations or interruptions.

Take control of your fuel costs today. The CNG fuel cost at AOG’s station generally changes only twice a year, April 1 and November 1. For fueling location and detailed prices, see the CNG Prices and Location section below.

Other Benefits

Local supplies of natural gas are used when producing compressed natural gas (CNG) which in turn supports local jobs, paying gas royalties to local property owners, stimulating our local economy and reducing the amount of American dollars being sent to foreign countries to buy oil.

When used as an automotive fuel, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is stored onboard vehicles in tanks that meet stringent safety requirements. Natural gas fuels are “sealed” which prevents spills or evaporative losses. Even if a leak were to occur in the fuel system, the natural gas would dissipate up into the atmosphere – unlike gasoline, which in the event of a leak or accident, pools on the ground, creating a fire hazard. Natural gas is not toxic or corrosive and will not contaminate ground water.

Home Refueling

Home fueling compressors are available which will enable you to fill your CNG fleet or vehicle from a separate natural gas service at your home or business. The cost of a home refueling station averages $5,000. Recently General Electric announced that its research division is working to develop a more cost effective unit. Applicable residential service rates will apply For details on residential CNG rates, please visit our CNG Rates page.

Commercial Refueling

There are commercial fueling compressors available which would enable you to fill your compressed natural gas vehicles from a separate natural gas service at your business. Normal commercial service rates would apply. For details on commercial rates, please visit our CNG Rates page.

Financial Incentives

Although the federal government does not currently offer any incentives for drivers or fleets that adopt CNG, many states offer tax credits or other benefits for making the switch.


The Arkansas Energy Office will award rebates through its Clean Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program. Currently no funds are available through this Program.


Oklahoma residents are eligible for state income tax credits/rebates for CNG conversions.
