On Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, drivers of natural gas fueled vehicles can fill up their gas tanks for 99 cents per gasoline gallon equivalent at seven regional stations, including:
- I-80 Fuel , 5318 L St., Omaha, NE 68117
- Metropolitan Utilities District (M.U.D.), 2614 S. 64th Ave., Omaha, NE 68106
- Trillium CNG™, 13233 Cornhusker Road, Omaha, NE 68138
- Black Hills Energy, 1600 Windhoek Dr., Lincoln, NE 68512

- Stirk CNG/Sapp Bros Travel Center, 6001 Cornhusker Hwy., Lincoln, NE 68507; 517 23rd St, Columbus, NE 68601
The public stations use Earth Day to raise awareness of CNG as an alternative transportation fuel to gasoline or diesel. In 2016, these Nebraska stations collectively displaced over 1,470,000 gallons of petroleum, which eliminated 3,590 tons of carbon dioxide emissions and displaced approximately 35,000 barrels of oil.
“With a network of fueling stations available, CNG is a viable option for fleet operators in our region,” said Kyle Bowman, NGV specialist for M.U.D. “Operators can bring real economic and environmental benefits to their businesses by using this clean, affordable, American fuel.”
M.U.D. operates more than 170 CNG fleet vehicles, including service vans, sedans, pick-up, medium-duty, crew and dump trucks.
