The national deputy Juan Manuel Pedrini will present a project to expand the network of CNG stations to the regions of Argentina that still lack the possibility of having this transport fuel, which is much cheaper than petroleum derivatives, such as gasoline and diesel. The bill will be presented in this legislative year that begins on March 1, according to Ciudad TV.
The legislator of the province of Chaco stressed that for years, the Argentine Northeast (NEA) region did not have access to this fuel and that now, although gas has already arrived, it is necessary to take advantage of this possibility and extend its use to vehicles. “This will allow us to integrate into the national CNG network, as well as generate investment and employment in Chaco and the region. It is also an opportunity for users, who will be able to have the same possibilities that even exist today in the north of Santa Fe,” said Pedrini.
In addition, he announced that he has already held dialogues with chambers and businessmen in the sector, interested in the possibility of making investments in the development of CNG in the region, and that the support of the Governor of Chaco Jorge Capitanich will be key to advancing with this project.
“We believe that the CNG is a human right that all the inhabitants of the Argentine territory should have equally, without distinction,” added Pedrini.
