We continue to look at CNG for our school bus fleet
Bayfield County recently added a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station (compresses utility- sourced natural gas). The county has 5 CNG vehicles. CNG is 50¢/gallon, GGE (gas gallon equivalent). The taxes on diesel and gas at 30¢/gallon, but only 25¢ on CNG. Bayfield county has overall costs of equivalents of 75¢/gallon.
