Natural gas more and more present in Dominican Republic

Dozens of vehicles convert to natural gas daily

Dozens of vehicles convert to natural gas daily, whereas industry leaders increasingly turn to that fuel, against a backdrop of the price per barrel hovering at the 100-dollar barrier.

The Industry and Commerce Ministry will launch a new ad campaign Tuesday to promote the use of natural gas in industry and transport, after the first effort started more than one year ago

Industry and Commerce said bus owners will save nearly 70% compared with gasoline, fewer pollutants would be released to the environment and their vehicles will also last longer.

News source elnuevodiario.com.do reports growing numbers of motorists filling at the natural gas stations located on the Maximo Gomez, Ovando, and Las Americas avenues, the one six kilometers north on the Duarte highway, and the one in Santiago, with two more being built in La Vega and San Francisco de Macoris.
