Will Mississippi consider natural gas one day?

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Will the state of Mississippi one day consider exploring the option to use compressed natural gas?

On Wednesday, The Mississippi Natural Gas Association and Jones County Junior College hosted a workshop that explored using natural gas for transportation. Several of the guest speakers said natural gas vehicles run cleaner and cost less to operate than those using gasoline.

Senator Chris McDaniel said natural gas would be very beneficial to Mississippians and this is a matter that all states should consider.
