Propane Forklifts Deliver Optimum Benefits

Posted by ThompsonGas on February 12th, 2013

Produced from both natural gas processing and crude oil refining, propane gas services are becoming the top choice for safe, clean and efficient energy for residential and commercial use. Propane can be used for propane home heating, cooking appliances, agricultural insect control, commercial kitchens and more. But did you know that propane gas services could also be used for operating forklifts?

With hiking fuel prices, operating fuel-consuming machinery like forklifts is very expensive. Industrial propane for forklifts is an alternative source of energy to diesel and gasoline. Current propane prices have not increased much since 2012, and propane prices are not more than $4 per gallon. And thanks to reputable propane gas suppliers like ThompsonGas, industrial propane services for forklifts are available at very competitive propane prices.
