Yellow Cab CNG Conversion May Cost Up to $8M

January 21, 2010

DALLAS - In a bid to cut costs and get front-of-the-line privileges at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Yellow Cab taxi company in North Texas plans to convert nearly all of its company-owned cabs from gasoline to compressed natural gas, according to the Dallas Business Journal.

Despite a total conversion cost that could exceed $8 million, Yellow Cab President Jack Bewley believes the change will ultimately lower expenses, in large part because compressed natural gas runs about $1.99 a gallon compared to $2.60 for a gallon of regular gasoline.

Yellow Cab officials also believe prices of compressed natural gas will be more stable in the long run than those of gasoline, reported the Journal.
