The state only pays $1.05 per gasoline gallon equivalent for natural gas compared to $1.70 a gallon for unleaded gasoline.The state also operates gas-electric hybrid vehicles, which typically get better gas mileage than gasoline vehicles. Last year, the state agreed to buy 60 Toyota hybrids for $19,177 each. The cars get about 48 miles per gallon. The first gas-electric hybrid vehicles were added to the Department of Administrative Services' motor pool in 2001.
