Missouri natural gas supply called “robust”
How will the state’s supply of natural gas be used? The EPA sees natural gas as a replacement for coal as part of the base load for generating electricity in Missouri.
But in this article and accompanying interview from the MissouriNet, it appears the state’e energy director sees a greater future for natural gas in powering vehicles. Associated Industries of Missouri supports this approach and backed legislation (HB2141) last session that helped change state tax collection to make unmanned stations available to provide compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied (LNG) natural gas to vehicles that would use it as fuel.
As you will read in the article, the increased used of natural gas is expected to help drove down the cost of gasoline in the state…and help that price stabilize at a lower level compared to other states.
