The Government of Canada is acting on multiple fronts to move towards low carbon mobility. Through initiatives such as the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Initiative, the government is enabling the adoption of alternative fuel transportation options by supporting the deployment of coast-to-coast CNG refueling infrastructure. Through its many vehicle regulations, it is working to reduce the amount of fuel used by the Canadian transportation industry.
CNG prices in North America have been trending higher under the influence of the significant increase in world crude oil prices and a tight balance between natural gas supply and demand. In addition, hurricane-related supply disruptions have caused brief spikes in very high prices, while the recent series of mild winters has helped dampen prices from even higher levels. Except for brief exceptional periods, CNG prices have tended to move relative to oil prices. This relationship usually has gas prices at approximately half the price of traditional fuels
The prices of Compressed Natural Gas for automobiles in Canada are low, so the possibility of using vehicles with this alternative fuel is very attractive, which is making many companies and individuals opt for this solution for their mobility, even more taking into account the long distances existing in Canada and that make it the country in the world with the highest energy consumption per capita
