Oklahomans can now find natural gas at gas stations around the state.
But they’re not allowed to purchase it from the gas stations, according to a new rule from the Oklahoma Department of Health and Human Services.
The rule says that a gas station cannot have a sign that says it is not open for customers to purchase natural gas, and that the gas station must have a separate sign for that.
Gas stations are not required to be open during the peak hours, so customers who want to purchase gas should call ahead to find out when it’s safe to do so, the state said in a statement.
Oklahoma has one of the most gas-dependent populations in the nation, according the EPA.
It’s estimated that there are about 11.4 million natural gas wells in the state, according a 2013 report by the U.S. Geological Survey.
It is also the third-largest producer of natural gas in the country.
