  • Why is Burbank fuel lower the all others ?

    Anyone know why Burbank fuel is lower that all other SOCAL fuel depots ?

    Did Burbank hedge their fuel price?

    The City of Burbank supports the price at that station. Many of their city vehicles are CNG. The low pricing is not going to last though. Rumor has it that the city is building their own filling infrastructure. Once that is done the contract with Clean Energy will go away and the price will look more like the rest of the stations in LA. :-(

      Basically, there is a $.50 refund to commercial stations for every gallon they pump, less an $.18 per gge excise tax. Burbank is simply passing on the discount. Once CE takes over, if in fact they do, you can count on the price taking a significant upward movement.

      There are rumors that SoCal Gas wants to get into the cng station business... guess who's screaming bloody murder...CE.

        Thanks for the input but I still am confused as to the arrangement between the City of Burbank and Clean Energy.
        Which agency refunds the 50 cents per gallon of fuel ?
        The station in Burbank is badged as Clean Energy, is it operated by Clean Energy for Burbank ?
        Your point about Clean Energy howling over SOCAL gas getting into the business is a really funny since Clean Energy has what now amounts to a monopoly of the NGV business here in SOCAL. They should welcome the entrance of SOCAL gas not fight it lest they are sued under the Sherman Anti Trust regulations.

          The $.50 comes from the gov't. The CE thing has to do with existing contracts which are about up. CE is a long ways from being a monoply, although it seems like it does own every pump in sight. Give them time, they'll manage or own just about every one of them. SoCal gas would compete pricewise and they don't want that. They thrive on higher than market prices at their pumps.

            It's not any more.
            It was $2.18/gge last time I filled. Someone posted on CNG prices that it is now $2.99/gge.
            Yikes!!! WTF changed??
            From the lowest to highest in one price change.

              Burbank Station down to $2.35 per CNGPRICES.com can someone concur? as I have not been there. Only 1 cent more than San Fernando Station, also Burbank has excellent pressure compared to SF. I never get a full fill at SF and lately its been real bad.

                I stopped by Burbank the other day. It was $2.35. I forgot who owned it, so I went to San Fernando and filled for $2.06 instead. There was several heavy duty vehicles pulled in behind me, which probably accounts for the fill pressures. I just need enough to get to another non-CE station.

                  Curtis - why didn't you update CNG Prices map?

                    When I had the opportunity to get to the computer, someone had already updated it to show $2.07. I figured it was handled.

                      On that subject though, there are a number of stations that have not been updated for Nov. Everyone, please take the time to check your favorite/local stations and make sute the price and operating status is current.

                        Am I looking at the wrong map? The fueling station map I'm seeing says that San Fernando price was last updated on 2008-10-13. What's going on???

                          You're right, I was on Saticoy, in Van Nuys, not SF. I'll check it tomorrow while I'm down there. Sorry for the confusion.

                            Thanks, no problem.
                            Just needed to know about SF. I'm closer to Valencia CE station. But, SF is usually cheaper (except for now).
