Dimock, PA (WBNG Binghamton) Cabot Oil and Gas prides itself on hiring and using local resources,but also in its ability to put natural gas to use for the surrounding public.

In the coming Months, Cabot Oil and Gas will open a natural gas station to fuel its company trucks.

"The big 3 manufacturers are making residential vehicle with natural gas. You're seeing that come on, Honda is selling them in Pennsylvania. You're going to see more of the residents move that way in time," says George Stark with Cabot Oil and Gas.

Cabot says the technology is there for residential cars, and it hopes to partner with Pennsylvania gas stations in the very near future.
