Regional energy supplier Oskarshamn Energy, owned equally by the Oskarshamn Municipality and E.ON Sweden AB, opened its new biomethane refueling station September 22 at Inkörningsvägen 2 in the eastern coastal city of Oskarshamn. The biomethane, a renewable fuel, is locally produced. In Sweden, tax for a gas-powered car is lower than for a petrol car, under rules effective from May 2006. For example, a gas-powered Opel Zafira CNG incurs tax of about 800 SEK (USD 121) / year. By comparison, the gasoline counterpart’s tax is about 1400 SEK (USD 212) / year.
