The governor also hopes to expand the natural gas fleet vehicle pilot program recently launched by the Department of Finance and Administration to include more of the state’s automobiles. DFA estimates that the pilot conversion will save the agency about $2,000 annually per vehicle, which represents the potential for big savings in a state that operates a fleet of about 7,400 vehicles, according to Bryant.
During the meeting, Bryant and Pickens discussed the possibility to open Mississippi’s first CNG stations, starting with Harrison and Jackson counties, reported Sun Herald. “The first of these stations are going to be at WastePro fueling stations on the Coast”, said state Rep. Hank Zuber, R-Ocean Springs.
