Alliance AutoGas teams with Gulfport's Coast Transit Authority, Nantucket Energy

The Coast Transit Authority (CTA) of Gulfport, MS, as well as Nantucket Energy Corporation, partnered with nationwide network Alliance AutoGas to convert a portion of their fleet of public vehicles over to clean-burning propane autogas.
CTA says that autogas is the most cost-efficient alternative fuel available and will convert four Glaval buses to run on affordable autogas. Meanwhile, Nantucket Energy Corporation will supply propane autogas to fleets on Massachusetts' tourist-attracting island. Program administrators there say the shift to autogas is congruent with "the historically independent, resourceful spirit" of Nantucket.

Alliance AutoGas is a national group consisting of propane retailers, conversion experts and equipment suppliers that assist fleet managers with the switch from gasoline to autogas. U.S. autogas is 90 percent made-in-America, so fleets powered by autogas should, at least in theory, reduce our nation's dependence on foreign oil. Autogas is approximately $1 per gallon less than gas and, due to its high octane rating, reportedly increases engine life and reliability compared to gasoline-fueled vehicles.
