New Jersey sets up natural gas stations in response to rising fuel costsAudio version
State regulators have approved a plan for New Jersey Natural Gas to spend up to $10 million to build five to seven natural gas refueling stations. The average residential customer will pay $3.50 a year for the program.
New Jersey actually has five natural gas filling stations. There are two in Atlantic City and one each in Newark, Camden and Glassboro. Only Honda sells natural gas vehicles in the U.S.
New Jersey Natural gas CEO Laurence Downes said the company has the opportunity to grow the economy and protect the environment.
