Natural gas comes from the street to the house at single digit pressures. IIRC, some stoves and heaters use about 1.5 Lbs pressure. This would have to be compressed to a liquid for efficient storage as auto fuel. Not something likely to happen at a residence. There was talk of Natural Gas Auto Fuel Stations years ago. Several gasoline alternatives are close to being financially feasible. Things are going to get interesting.

CNG seems to be less practical than propane as an automotive fuel. There are 2 CNG filling stations I know of in Albuquerque. I dunno what the deal with tunnels is but I have never driven through one so I'm not worried about that. There are enough propane filling stations for road trips, think of all the RVs that use propane. On my road trip through west Texas, I noticed that there were signs for propane filling stations on exits, just as there were the food/gas/lodging signs.
