GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) As gas prices continue to rise over the years, another source of fuel is being hailed as a cheaper and safer alternative.

Compressed natural gas vehicles are beginning to gain traction across the nation.

Several Western Slope cities have already put in fueling stations for CNG vehicles as they swap their fleets out; and it'll soon take to personal cars too.

"In the next two or three years you're going to see home fueling stations available where you can have that installed at your house," says Ford Dealer Eli Frick. "You can actually fuel your own vehicle yourself and buy fuel from yourself on your normal gas bill."

Experts say that by using those home fueling stations, filling up your tank will cost 75 to 80 cents per gallon.

However, because the units that will be installed at private residences are much slower than commercial stations they may require overnight filling.
