Share Article

CNG now available for region's robust automotive, agriculture, and transportation industry operations.

"Kentucky's strategic location for national freight movement is further strengthened with the addition of the ANG site near I-75/I-64," noted Kentucky Clean Fuels Coalition President Alan Steiden.

American Natural Gas (ANG), a premier distributor of alternative motor fuels, is excited to announce the opening of the first public compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Georgetown, Kentucky. Located along the I-75/I-64 corridor, at 405 Cherry Blossom Way, it brings alternative fuel to the region’s robust automotive, agriculture, and transportation industry operations.

"Kentucky's strategic location for national freight movement is further strengthened with the addition of the ANG site near I-75/I-64," noted Kentucky Clean Fuels Coalition President Alan Steiden.

“Alternative fuels can make a dramatic impact on the transportation industry,” said Drew West, CEO of ANG. “I’m excited that this location will make conversion to CNG a realistic option for all of the fleets running through Kentucky.”

Trucking is the predominate mode of freight transportation in Kentucky because it’s located within 600 miles of 60% of the country’s population, 58% of the country’s manufacturing firms, and 59% of the nation’s purchasing power.

Bestway Express has signed on as anchor tenant of the station. “Having a CNG station in our backyard is a major step toward meeting our goals,” said Will McCormick, maintenance director for Bestway Express. “We’re committed to reducing emissions, our carbon footprint, and our dependency on foreign oil and our continued relationship with ANG will make it all possible.”

CNG is the cleanest burning transportation fuel commercially available today. Overall costs to operate heavy-duty trucks on CNG are significantly less than running the same trucks on gasoline or diesel fuel.

ANG worked closely with Columbia Gas, a utility company and natural gas supplier, to secure high pressure and capacity. This, coupled with the station’s state-of-the-art compressors and equipment, gives heavy-duty tractors the high-flow and easy fueling experience they need. The site feature generous ingress and egress, large capacity buffer storage and consumer-friendly CNG fuel dispensers.

This ANG station will accept major credit cards, Voyager, Wright Express/WEX, and other leading fleet cards. It will also offer a Fleet Fuel Savings Program. For more information, please email info(at)americannaturalgas.com or call 866-264-6220.
