Texas county to save an estimated $61,000 with autogas vehicles
Dec. 5, 2012 -- A new propane filling station opened Thursday in Williamson County.
The county estimates this will save taxpayers $61,000.
Benefits of propane include the reduced environmental impact of propane emissions, cost savings of propane fuel compared to the average cost per gallon of gasoline, and reduced number of oil changes required.
In addition, propane is 97 percent North American produced, with one-third of the propane supply being produced here in Texas.
