New Natural Gas Refilling Station Celebrated
A grand opening of a new gas station last week in Salt Lake City attracted dignitaries from local and state government and the gas industry. That’s because this isn’t your average service station. It’s the latest natural gas filling station in Utah and the first to use federal stimulus dollars. KCPW’s Elizabeth Ziegler attended the event and filed this report:

New natural gas station opens in Salt Lake
May 14th, 2010
SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah drivers with cars powered by natural gas have a new place to fill up.
A new natural gas fueling station at 4285 W. 1385 South was funded by a government grant worth nearly $15 million. The rest of the money will help build 16 new natural gas stations and upgrade 24 others.
"This whole goal of this is actually to bring in less pollution. If we can't change people's driving habits, at least get them into clean cars," says Carrie Giles, director of Utah Clean Cities.
A gasoline gallon equivalent of natural gas costs only 93 cents per gallon.
