IGS opens third natural gas fueling station in West Virginia

CHARLESTON (AP) — IGS Energy has opened its third compressed natural gas fueling station for vehicles in West Virginia.

The Charleston station that opened Tuesday joins Ohio-based IGS Energy fueling stations in Jane Lew and Bridgeport. IGS also has a station in Dublin, Ohio, and is opening another in May in Girard, Ohio.

Surging production has the gas industry seeking out new markets for its products, and companies are focusing more on the transportation sector. They tout natural gas as a cheaper, cleaner alternative to gasoline and diesel.

Maribeth Anderson with Chesapeake Energy says motorists can now drive natural gas-fueled vehicles from Charleston to Pittsburgh, at a cost of about $2 per gallon.
