LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico petroleum regulators are about to start enforcing a new state rule on retail sales of natural gas for vehicles.

The Department of Agriculture says the new rule requires that sellers of compressed and liquefied natural gas label the product by mass or gallon equivalent.

According to the department, the rule stems from increases in the number of vehicles that can run on natural gas and of fueling stations to serve those vehicles.

Agriculture Secretary Jeff Witte says the requirement for a standard unit of measurement for most fuels enables drivers whose motorists can run on more than one type of fuel to make decisions based on economic sense.
