STILLWATER, Oklahoma -- We would all love to save money on gas right now. Saving more than $1.50 a gallon sounds pretty good doesn't it?
Oklahoma State opened a new compressed natural gas fueling station today. It's a way OSU's Orange is now going Green and saving big bucks in the process.
Joined by Governor Mary Fallin, and the nation's leading advocate for natural gas, T. Boone Pickens, Oklahoma State leaders officially opened a new compressed natural gas fueling station.
"It's cleaner. It's cheaper. It's abundant. It's domestic. And you don't have to refine it," said Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis.
Eighteen of the buses in the university's fleet are now running on CNG. Transit Director Steve Spradling says it is saving OSU a lot of money.
"Just in March alone, we saved about $17,000 on the local transit system," Spradling said.
