CNG price in France in
The use of CNG in the passenger transport sector started in the mid-1990s in France with buses and later with refuse collection vehicles. Local authorities gradually adopted CNG, a low-emission fuel, for public bus fleets and later for waste collection vehicles.
More recently, the freight transport sector has turned to CNG to reduce its polluting emissions. Most large supermarkets are committed to CSR and use CNG vehicles.
Regulations now require local authorities to renew part of their fleet with so-called low emission vehicles and CNG vehicles are considered low emission vehicles throughout France.
One in four buses and one in five dustbins sold in France run on CNG. In addition to the drastic reduction in local pollution, the use of NGVs halves the noise of vehicles and allows Certibruit certification of deliveries, and contributes to improving the working conditions of drivers thanks to quieter and odourless vehicles.
The choice of natural gas vehicles, which also concerns courier and construction services, allows deliveries to be made in all city centres. The market share of CNG trucks has quadrupled in three years.

6 December 2021.
After a year marked by the 2020 health crisis, the global recovery is causing a real rebound in energy prices. Natural gas, CNG and LNG fuels are also affected and prices at the pump are already over €2/kg in some stations.
A historic increase that tends to reduce the economic advantage of gas over diesel. According to GRDF, the price of the gas molecule represented on average between 30 and 35% of the price of CNG before the crisis. Now it has risen to 60-65%.
For the Energy Regulation Commission (CRE), the rise in gas prices is exceptional.
