Nonprofits and Government Agencies Get Free CNG Conversions


Eleven non-profits and government agencies get grants from the Apache Corporation to convert vehicles to compressed natural gas. It’s part of Apache’s neighborhood giving program. One recipient is the Tulsa Dream Center. Director Wendall Hope says the conversion is not something they could afford on their own.

Another non-profit getting the grant is the Oklahoma Baptist Home for Children. Spokesman Neal Wooldridge says he knows it will save money.

CNG is selling for less than two dollars for an equivalent gallon of unleaded gasoline which is above three dollars right now.
