Michael Stivala, CEO of New Jersey-based Suburban Propane, the nation’s third-largest retail distributor of propane that sells 450 million gallons to 1.1 million residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural customers in 41 states every year, tells Newsmax most people aren’t aware of how versatile the fuel is. “People just equate it to their barbecue grill, but it is really much more than that. As an energy source, it really reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced by vehicles. It’s got about 50 to 70% less carbon monoxide than gasoline. It’s cost effective,” Stivala says. “It’s a very safe commodity to deal with — propane tanks are 20 times more puncture-resistant than the traditional gasoline and diesel tank,” Stivala adds. “And it’s an abundant product. It’s readily available and 90% of it is produced right here in the U.S. It’s a good clean American source of energy.” Read the full article on Newsmax: As Gas Prices Spike, Propane Eyed as Clean Alternative for Vehicles
