Williamsport Mayor installs natural gas station at home
WILLIAMSPORT — One local mayor is supporting the natural gas industry in his own way. Williamsport Mayor Gabe Campana says he recently purchased a Honda Civic GX which runs on compressed natural gas.
The problem is fueling stations are few and far between in this area, so Campana came up with a solution. Campana says he added a natural gas filling station at his home. He says a gallon is far cheaper than gas at $1.50. He says it is clean and it is “pro-United States.”
Campana says he has natural gas in his home and recently installed a slow fill natural gas station at his home for about $7,000. It takes 8-10 hours to fill his car and a full tank can take him about 250 miles.
Campana believes Williamsport is on the cutting edge of technology. The city will soon be home to a public and private compressed natural gas station. They plan to run a fleet of buses on natural gas. (Sara Bartlett)
