City Celebrates Opening of CNG Station

The City of Springfield has opened the area's only Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) station at its Public Works Operation Center, 1111 W. Chestnut Expressway. CNG is a clean-burning, high-octane fuel that produces 60-90% less pollutants and 30-40% less greenhouse gas emissions than either gasoline or diesel fuels, thus providing for cleaner air to breathe.

The station is open to the general public. The cost is $1.75 per gallon of gasoline equivalent (GGE). A GGE is the same energy content as a gallon of gasoline.

A ribbon cutting will take place at 1 p.m., Friday, Oct. 12
Springfield Public Works Operations Center
1111 W. Chestnut Expressway
