Oregon State Fleet Saves Money with CNG and Hybrid Vehicles

June 1, 2004

SALEM, OR – The state of Oregon is saving money on fleet fuel costs because its fleet contains natural gas-powered and hybrid vehicles, according to the Statesman Journal.The Department of Administrative Services has about 140 cars that run on natural gas. 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.
