Fuel Stations are points at which vehicles operating on gasoline, diesel, natural gas, or hydrogen can stop at in order to refuel. Fuel stations are set up as rows of pumps which connect to the vehicles that need refueling. The liquid fuel is generally stored underground, beneath the station itself, and is refueled up to once daily (depending on how many vehicles frequent the station for refueling). As gasoline and diesel prices are climbing, companies are venturing toward the use of clean air fuels such as natural gas and hydrogen. At this point, very few hydrogen fueling stations exist in the United States (California currently has the most). Natural gas is a much more common type of alternative fuel and has been available since 1998.
