The first experiments and studies on the use of natural gas as fuel for vehicles were carried out at the beginning of the 20th century. Since 1925, after numerous successful experiments, compressed gas has been actively used as a fuel for cars in a number of European countries. The vehicles were equipped with gas engines and special tanks for natural gas. To guarantee the refueling of gas-powered vehicles, the construction of CNG service stations was started.

Noting that Russia is the first country in the world in natural gas reserves and the second in its production, and that the use of gas as a fuel in transport is profitable and safer for the environment than traditional fuels it is obvious that CNG development in Russia has a bright future ahead of it.

Different programs of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade aim to make possible a CNG refueling network in a large country and bring CNG closer to drivers of private vehicles. These programs subsidize the cost of acquiring equipment that uses natural gas as motor fuel and the installation of CNG refueling stations. Thus, in 2017, 4,960 million rubles were allocated, and another 1,960 million rubles from the Anti-Crisis Fund of the Government of the Russian Federation later.

The price of CNG in Russia is also cheap compared to other traditional fuels, so in Russia there are all the conditions for the use of natural gas as fuel to become widespread.

Even the most staunch supporters of internal combustion engines are no longer convinced of the advantages of CNG vehicles. Environmentally friendly and energy efficient compared to gasoline and diesel, it has become the mainstay of transportation in many countries. And Russia, with its superiority in gas production, is not among the leaders. The transition to gas is hampered by underdeveloped refueling infrastructure and a lack of interest from vehicle owners in converting to gas.

Thus, gas sales in Russia as vehicular natural gas (VNG) are growing, and growing at a good pace: from 703,000 million m3 in 2018 to 1,325,000 million in 2021. During the same period, the number of service stations of CNG increased from 400 to 640. The current structure of the CNG vehicle fleet is shown in the table. We can only draw one conclusion: We don't have too few gas cars, but rather too few in our total of 60 million vehicles registered at the beginning of 2022, according to Autostat. Both the national infrastructure and the Russian fleet of natural gas vehicles are still far behind those of countries that actively use gas as fuel.
