The Natural Gas Frontier
Any interest in less expensive, domestically produced fuel?
In early May, Chevrolet announced that it would begin production of a bi-fuel Impala for the 2015 model year. The new Impala will be able to run on both compressed natural gas and traditional gasoline with the ability to seamlessly switch between the two for a combined range of over 500 miles. This announcement is particularly important as it indicates that General Motors has an interest in natural gas as a fuel alternative and may develop it for other models and brands. At present, natural gas production continues to boom, pushing prices to 30-40% less than the gasoline equivalents.
In addition to the price advantages, natural gas is cleaner to produce and burn as well as being produced in the United States, with much of it coming from Pennsylvania and providing jobs to thousands of people in the local area. These advances are exciting and have the potential to positively impact the environment, employment, and your very own checkbook! For more information visit:
