Fountain Valley, CA, July 11, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Is paying over $3.00 per gallon putting a strain on your budget? Currently, the highest gasoline price was listed in Kailua, Hawaii at $3.89 per gallon and the cheapest is in Boise, Idaho at $2.25 per gallon.
Diesel, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and E85 (Ethanol) have been great fuel alternatives that are being used by many people today. The price of CNG is still cheaper than gasoline. In Utah, the price of CNG is only at $1.23 per gallon, diesel fuel has a national average of $2.45 per gallon and Ethanol ranges from $1.99-$2.60 per gallon.
Some people may not know that government auctions can be a great source for alternative fuel vehicles. Sites like PoliceAuctions.com can help car shoppers looking for CNG, Diesel or Ethanol vehicles by searching its database of over 2000 government auctions through out the United States. Vehicles such as Ford Ranger pickup trucks, Dodge Stratus sedans, and Ford E350 passenger vans are all available at a government auto auction occurring in Norwalk, California.
This particular auction will be held on July 28th, 2006. There will be over 35 alternative fuel vehicles available for bidding on that day. According to PoliceAuctions.com, additional vehicles are also available in other government auctions in different parts of the U.S. such as Albuquerque, New Mexico, Fort Worth, Texas, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Springfield, Missouri, Daytona Beach, Florida.
Driving vehicles that use alternative fuels can help save the owner hundreds to thousands of dollars per year in fuel costs. A great example of how much money can be saved by driving this type of vehicle was demonstrated by a Salt Lake, Utah resident. Beverly Miller drives a CNG Honda Civic and she was featured in the 06/24/2006 issue of the Salt Lake Tribune, which stated that it only cost her $7.00 to fill up her tank, and she only pays $1.23 per gallon of CNG. Prior to her getting the CNG Honda, she was used to paying about $200.00 per month on gasoline costs, now her monthly CNG cost is less than $75 which is about a savings of $1500 per year compared to the cost of gas at $2400 per year.
As gas prices keep rising, more people will start to consider ways to save on fuel costs. Some may take public transportation, some could ride their bikes but there are people like Beverly Miller that chose to drive an alternative fuel vehicle. Savings on fuel costs alone can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars, that doesn’t even include some of the tax breaks that the government allows you to take for owning such a vehicle. Using sites like PoliceAuctions.com can help the cost cutting consumer to start saving money ASAP once they locate a government auction that features alternative fuel vehicles.
