Lafayette to Open CNG Station

Work is underway to build a new compressed natural gas fueling station in Lafayette, Louisiana.  The station is being built by the city to support five new natural gas-powered buses that are scheduled to arrive by July.  The station will be a public works facility, but it will be open to the general public. Nearby Baton Rouge already has three CNG stations open to the public.

This new station is another step in the slow chicken and egg process of creating natural gas vehicle fueling infrastructure.  As fleets adopt CNG to improve economics and lessen their environmental impact, a CNG fueling infrastructure will be built in pieces.  As the gaps fill in, it will be considerably easier for the public to own natural gas vehicles.  It won't be fast, and it might not be pretty, but the process seems to be starting in earnest.
