FORT MYERS, FL -

Lee County is now home to one of the first ethanol gas stations in Florida.  The higher-octane gas is cheaper and better for the environment, but we found local mechanics who say buyers beware. 
 
Gas at $2.15 and $1.85 a gallon -- it's no mistake.  The low prices were hard for many drivers to pass up.

AUSTIN, TX -- Proposed new national ground-level ozone standards put Central Texas at risk of being designated a “nonattainment” area by 2017. However, ongoing regional air quality planning efforts could make the difference in preserving the region’s attainment status. On November 26, 2014, the U.S. Evironmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed tightening the “primary” ozone standard from 75 parts per billion (ppb) to between 65-70 ppb to protect public health and welfare. Ozone levels in Central Texas are currently within the range proposed by EPA for the standards.

From the folks at Clean Fuels Consulting: The results and conclusions from the 6th Critical Issues Workshop, CNG & LNG Safety: Perception & Reality held in Brussels on 8-9 October 2014 are now finalized and available. Fifty six participating experts from 16 countries on four continents attended, representing natural gas vehicle (NGV) stakeholders including equipment manufacturers and suppliers, vehicle manufacturers and government policy makers.
