Lehigh Gas to open CNG pump in Concordville this week

Posted: September 18, 2012

The race is on to open natural-gas vehicle fueling stations in the Philadelphia area.

Lehigh Gas Corp., an Allentown company that owns about 600 branded gasoline stations in eastern states, on Thursday will open a compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel pump at its Concordville Exxon station at 1130 Baltimore Pike. Lehigh Gas already has one public CNG outlet in State College, and plans to open pumps at existing gasoline stations in King of Prussia, Ardmore, Exton, Harrisburg and Center Valley in Lehigh County, said Sil Lutkewitte, alternative fuels manager.

Clean Energy Fuels Corp., which operates several outlets in New Jersey, last week opened its first Pennsylvania CNG station in Fairless Hills, Bucks County. Most CNG stations serve fleet operators like trash haulers, but advocates hope that as the network expands natural-gas vehicles will be more attractive to individual buyers.
