Ohio develops its first liquefied natural gas station deployed through the recovery act

The US Energy Department announced the recent opening of the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station in Ohio. The station will be an important stop along a new series of corridors now being equipped with LNG infrastructure that will enable trucks to ship goods across the country using this alternative fuel. The Obama Administration's investments in early LNG fueling infrastructure, like the Ohio fueling station announced today, are helping to catalyze the privately funded build-out of these corridors. Alternative fuel vehicles and station projects like this one are part of a comprehensive strategy to cut America's dependence on foreign oil, reduce emissions, drive down transportation costs and help protect American families and businesses from high gasoline and oil prices.
