CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - IGS Energy is opening its third compressed natural gas fueling station for vehicles in West Virginia.
The Charleston station that's opening 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.
In addition to West Virginia and Ohio, IGS Energy has long-term plans to open natural gas fueling stations in Indiana, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Kentucky.
