Am I correct natural gas mileage is less as well?

From what I remember, CNG mileage per "gallon equivalent" was better than a standard gasoline/diesel engine, but worse than a typical hybrid, at least with cars. Not too many hybrid buses out there.

However, there is a less tank capacity (it's a compressed gas, not a liquid, in most cases), so you need to fill more often than with gasoline.

I know at one point at least a CNG "gallon equivalent" was priced at about half that of gasoline. Not sure currently. But as mentioned, natural gas prices go up, just as they do every winter, as people heat their homes.
