Rt. 6 In Pennsylvania Proposed As National CNG Model

From Potter County Today

cngfillingAs more natural gas is produced domestically, there is a movement to convert motor vehicles to operate on compressed natural gas and to build models powered by CNG, rather than gasoline. One idea being discussed locally is a plan to develop CNG fueling stations along the Route 6 corridor across northern Pennsylvania. There’s no denying the benefits of using CNG over gasoline, including a cost savings of as much as 50 percent for fuel. Converting a gasoline-powered car to CNG requires only minor engine modifications, as well as storage accommodations. The “Pa. Rt. 6 CNG Corridor Initiative”’ seeks to establish a national model with retail hubs in communities located along Rt. 6 to allow drivers to refuel. Partners in this initiative include the Pa. Route 6 Alliance, DCNR, Northern Tier Regional Planning and Development Commission, Congressman Glenn Thompson, Penn State Extension and Potter County Education Council.
