Fergus Falls, MN (WDAY TV) - One Fergus Falls car dealer is taking a step toward a more efficient future.

Nelson Auto Center has a brand new pickup that runs on compressed natural gas.

Vehicles like this quarter-ton Ram that run on C.N.G. are trending in areas like California and in the south. The city of Fergus Falls is hoping the Midwest will pick up on this trend.

Brent Nelson, Nelson Auto Center: "The cost of gasoline is going up and up and up and even though compressed natural gas will probably follow that, it's probably somewhere about 60 percent of the cost of gasoline."

Nelson Auto Center says organizations who use fleets would benefit most from the cost effective technology but would need several different fueling stations to offer the compressed natural gas.
