In a story published July 8, “NatGas Gasoline Fueling Research” (see NGI, July 8), NGI incorrectly stated that Primus Green Energy sells a gasoline product for about $2.00/gallon. In fact, the company creates the product at a cost of $2.00/gallon. In addition, NGI incorrectly stated that the company expects to produce 10,000 gallons of fuel annually. The company actually plans to produce 100,000 gallons of fuel annually. NGI regrets the errors.
