The use of compressed natural gas in vehicles has advantages over gasoline, mainly less pollution, more cost-effective, and higher safety and low maintenance costs, the environmental advisor at the Planning and Budget Organization said.
Last November when gasoline prices increased car owners at the lower end of the economic ladder converted their vehicles into CNG-hybrids because CNG prices were unchanged, IRNA reported Abu Ali Golzari as saying.
