The City of Tyler, Texas, unveiled its compressed natural gas (CNG) station for City vehicles. The station is the first step in a pilot project to assess the viability of converting the Tyler fleet to the use of CNG. The effort to convert a portion of the City fleet to CNG was a direct outcome of the Industry Growth Initiative (IGI) adopted by the Tyler community in 2010. By June, 19 of the City’s 600 fleet vehicles will be running on CNG, at an estimated cost per gallon of $1.50 compared to $3.50 to $4.00 for unleaded gasoline.
