Range Resources purchases 180 natural gas vehicles

 

CANONSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Range Resources Corp. has purchased 180 natural gas powered vehicles to serve operations in Pennsylvania, Oklahoma and other states.

The Fort Worth, Texas-based gas drilling company says in a Wednesday release that it purchased Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and Ram 2500 pickup trucks from the manufacturers. The vehicles cost more than conventional ones but since compressed natural gas sells for about half the price of gasoline, Range says the fuel savings will pay back the cost in about two years. The CNG vehicles also emit less pollution.

Mark Karney, the Alternative Fuels Director for General Motors, says the company expects demand for CNG vehicles to grow as more vehicle styles are offered.

Range says about 100 of the CNG vehicles are located in Pennsylvania.
