Natural gas, while fairly cheap, is not as efficient as gasoline or diesel. When you factor in gummint taxes (fuel tax, highway tax) it would be more costly, per mile travelled. Since, in the past, I have driven LP gas fueled pickups, I know that the engines will live longer, but they also need a bulky, heavy tank, which, in an accident, could explode and be much more dangerous in a crash. The same can be said for CNG powered vehicles.
