Board of Ed OKs propane for buses

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - School administrators in West Virginia now have the option of transporting students with propane-powered school buses.

The state Board of Education on Thursday voted to change its policy to allow the use of propane as a fuel for school buses.

State Schools Superintendent Jorea Marple says switching to propane could save an average $3,100 per bus in fuel costs annually.

More than two dozen other states have adopted propane as an alternative fuel source.
