LEESVILLE, La. (AP) — Two west-central Louisiana towns are preparing for a future in which vehicles are routinely fueled with compressed natural gas.
Plans were announced Friday for the town of Hornbeck to construct and operate a compressed natural gas station in nearby Leesville.
The Town Talk of Alexandria reports (http://townta.lk/1jItIpN ) that Hornbeck has its own natural gas distribution system.
The town's pipeline runs through Leesville, very close to the location off U.S. Highway 171 where the station will be built.
Hornbeck will pay a portion of sales to Leesville as a franchise fee.
