City officials in Tyler, Texas, joined the public and various stakeholders this week to officially debut the city's first compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station, which was built to initially serve Tyler's municipal fleet.
According to a report from the Tyler Morning Telegraph, the city plans to have 19 natural gas vehicles – including light-duty trucks and refuse vehicles – online by June. The local price of CNG averaged less than $1.50 per gallon-gasoline-equivalent in February.
