All day today CNBC is focusing on converting vehicles to run on nat gas.  Rick Sentelli is in Oklahoma at a company that does nat gas conversions.  They are working on a pick up truck, showing what needs to be done to make it bi-fuel.  By the end of the day, they will be driving around in the converted truck to show what it can do.

During one segment already aired, they said that if you fill up at home, you will pay an equivalent of 66 cents per gallon. Thats right.....66 cents per gallon!  They also said the tanks are safer than gasoline tanks and even if one would rupture the nat gas would rise as it is lighter than air unlike gasoline that lays on the ground and burns.

Jim: Another great post. Have seen different figures, but at current natural gas prices do you know what the equivalent gasoline per gallon price would be. For example if I have a car that has a twenty gallon tank, and my car gets 20 mpg, and gas is $4.00 per gallon, it would cost me $80.00 to drive 400 miles. If car was converted to CNG, how much would it cost to drive the same $400.
