Omaha, Neb. — On Earth Day, Monday, April 22, drivers of natural gas fueled vehicles can fill up their gas tanks for 99 cents per gasoline gallon equivalent at six 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
- Lincoln Airport Authority, 3520 NW 36th St., Lincoln, NE 68524
- 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 2018, these Nebraska stations collectively displaced over 1 million gallons of petroleum, which eliminated 2,400 tons of carbon dioxide emissions and displaced approximately 24,000 barrels of oil.
“Accessibility to public fueling options enables CNG to be a competitive fuel choice to bring real economic and environmental benefits to fleet owners,” said Kyle Bowman, business development specialist for M.U.D. “CNG provides the opportunity to use clean, affordable and American fuel.”
M.U.D. operates more than 180 CNG fleet vehicles, including service vans, sedans, pick-ups, medium-duty, crew and dump trucks.
