Compressed natural gas fueling station opens in Valley
WEATHERSFIELD — IGS CNG Services opened the first compressed natural gas fueling station in the Mahoning Valley today.
The station is located at Mr. Fuel on Salt Springs Road in Weathersfield Township, and cost about $2 million.
IGS has two other CNG stations in Ohio — Dublin and Orrville — and three in West Virginia.
“Our plan responds to the emerging market demand for fast, convenient refueling of CNG vehicles,” said Scott White, company president. “We want to create the opportunity to travel all over the region without a worry of whether you can find a location to fuel up with compressed natural gas.”
The company is focusing its efforts on companies with fleets of large trucks that use diesel fuel, he said.
The cost of CNG is $2.249 a gallon equivalent, about $1.65 a gallon cheaper than diesel.
