First CNG station opens in Eugene

CNG EUGENE, Ore. — The first public Compressed Natural Gas station (CNG) in the state opened in Eugene Wednesday morning.

The grand opening was at Travelcard Commercial Fueling where NW Natural Gas, gas suppliers, Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian, representatives from Oregon Department of Energy, the Oregon Department of Transportation, and CNG car owners met for the ribbon cutting.

The station provides a cheaper and more environmentally friendly alternative to gasoline.

“We had to make a great leap of faith to actually build a facility so that there is fuel available to our customers,” said John Anderson, owner of Eugene Truck Haven. “Now that we’ve done that, there’s been a great response from our customers saying: ‘How do I apply it to my operation?’”

There are 705 CNG stations in the country.
