If natural gas refuelling stations were available across the US, would you get rid of your gas burner and get a natural gas hybrid, or a natural gas powered vehicle?

I have had a gasoline-powered hybrid and would still be driving it had somebody not totaled it. Couldn't get a hybrid to replace it as all the hybrids were snapped up before I had to buy a new vehicle and I wanted a Ford Escape. So, I got a conventional Escape.

As to CNG, I'd consider it if we got to the 11,600 refusing locations that they have calculated would be required to make a new fuel feasible.

CNG can be converted to drop-in liquid transpiration fuels. Malaysia and South Africa do it today as they have plenty of natural gas and no crude oil. The major developer of gas-to-liquids is Sasol Limited. I had a 34% profit (not counting their significant dividends) on an investment of slightly more than a year.
