This plain, but functional structure is the methane gas distributor in Molfetta. It is located outside of town in the countryside, as all methane gas distributors are. (Risk of explosion? I don't want to know...)
Our car runs on what they call Bi-Power, meaning it can use either regular gasoline or methane. Methane, for the moment, costs a lot less than what you pay for regular gas, the price of which keeps going up, up, up. As of yesterday, the average price for a litre of unleaded in Italy was €1.42. Those of you in the States keep in mind that a litre is only a quarter of a gallon, so you have to multiply that price by 4 to make a comparison...imagine paying $5.68 a gallon!
Unfortunately, methane prices have also been rising recently. Yesterday's average price nationally was €.92.
That's why I take the train to work...
