The Portage Area Regional Transportation Authority (PARTA) in Ohio has opened up a new public/private compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station.
Located at 2000 Summit Rd. in Kent, the station is offering CNG for $1.99 per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE), says PARTA.
According to local coverage from the Record-Courier, the station received funding from a federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant awarded to Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (AMATS).

PARTA currently has two CNG buses in its fleet and expects to purchase eight more in the coming years, the report says.
It may take a while for America to realize that Nat Gas is far & away the best transportation fuel. It absolutely, hands down, beats all the other alternative fuels as far as reliability, price, cleanliness & supply. It’s even renewable too. So would all the anti-fossil fuel people avoid the Christmas rush and get on board now. The benefits of CNG & LNG are just too great to wait for the other flawed fuels to be developed.
Doug, I strongly agree with your comment….and fully support your belief that the “anti fossil fuel people” are missing the reasonable solution to USA’ transportation fuel woes when they lump CH4 (methane) including RNG, with long chain hydrocarbons that deserve condemnation.
