“Three stations are already operating in Querétaro and two stations are under construction: one in Aguascalientes and Celaya”, he continued.

Advantages of using natural gas

Hernandez explained that natural gas is more “environmentally friendly” than gasoline and LP gas, it is also safer and more economical; because it reduces up to 90% of carbon monoxide particles and produce 30% less emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2).

In terms of storage and control in case of leakage, natural gas is more secure, since it is lighter, and in it dissipates in the atmosphere faster than gasoline and LP gas.

Hernandez mentioned that NatGas has 19 stations across the country. And concluded saying that there are approximately 35 million vehicles in Mexico, and only 7 thousand of them are powered by clean natural gas, in

As additional data, authorities in Mexico City and the surrounding metropolitan area, allow vehicles that are powered by natural gas to circulate everyday, because they produce 30% less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and therefore are less polluting.
