COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

For the first time in the event's three year existence, the Alternative Fueled Vehicle Road Show has made its way to Columbus.

The goal of the road show is to showcase the practical impact of clean, alternative fuels in modern vehicles. Consumers are able to have a close-up look at propane, biofuels, natural gas, and electric vehicles.

Force 911 is responsible for installing propane for The Muscogee County Sheriff's Office, who started running on propane about a year ago. They have been saving a significant amount of money on fuel ever since. 

Whitney Collins of Force 911 says everyone is happy about saving tax dollars and helping the planet by using a domestic product. "That's something that makes your citizens feel good, and even as someone who drives a propane powered vehicle, it makes me feel good," says Whitney.

Those involved with the road show hope that more people in the area will consider making the switch to alternative fuel.

Alternative-fueled vehicles are a step in the direction of reducing US dependence on foreign oil, and can also lower operating costs for vehicles, including the amount of money spent on gas.
