A state representative thinks Indiana can become a leader in compressed natural gas technology. Randall Frye (R-67) cites a number of Hoosier companies that produce engine components capable of using the fuel. He says the state could save around $200 million in fuel costs switching vehicles to CNG from diesel or gasoline over a 10-year period.
Frye says compressed natural gas costs about 40 percent less to fill vehicles.
He tells Inside INdiana Business corporations are "heavily invested" in the technology, which he believes will lead to increased availability.
Frye says he intends to start working on legislation to incentivise the use of CNG for fleet vehicles.
