City of Harrisburg switches city trucks, police car, to compressed natural gas

The Poinsett County town of Harrisburg has switched some of the city's vehicles to compressed natural gas in an effort to save money on fuel costs.

Trucks used by the city's street and water/sewer/gas departments and a city police car have been converted from gasoline to CNG.

Mayor Randy Mills told The Jonesboro Sun (http://bit.ly/KdaHoC ) that the conversion costs thousands of dollars per vehicle — and he hopes the lower cost of CNG will offset the price. Mills says CNG currently is the equivalent of about $2.13 per gallon of gasoline — more than $1 per gallon less than gas.

Craighead County Judge Ed Hill says he wants to research the possibility of using CNG for his county's vehicles.
