Natural Gas

Natural GasNatural gas is a domestically produced gaseous fuel that can be used in vehicles as either compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), renewable natural gas (RNG), or biogas.  Throughout California, natural gas is a widely used fuel type for fleet and transit vehicles.  As such, Southern California has a built-out infrastructure of CNG and LNG and is continuing to build out facilities to produce RNG and biogas.
