Ford natural gas

One of the most popular pickup trucks in the country is about to get cheaper to drive.

Ford is announcing plans to offer a version its best-selling F-150 truck that runs on liquefied natural gas.

The full-size truck can take either compressed natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas.

The new version will cost about $10,000 more than current models but Ford said the lower price of natural gas will offset the added cost within two to three years.

The natural gas F-150 will be available in the 2014 model year.
