Akron Soon to Have First Natural Gas Filling Station for Public

From the Akron Beacon Journal:
Akron will soon have its first natural gas filling station open to the public.
Akron City Council approved plans Monday for J Rayl Transport, a regional trucking company, to add a compressed natural gas filling station and truck terminal to its property at the corner of South Arlington Street and Palmetto Avenue.
The company plans to convert its fleet of trucks from diesel to either natural gas or a combination of diesel and natural gas. The filling station also will be open to the public, likely attracting other commercial businesses that are using natural gas.
Dan Carter, J Rayl’s financial controller, told council members the conversion will save the company money, with natural gas running about a third of the cost of diesel. He said natural gas also is a cleaner burning fuel and is a resource readily available in the United States.
