New station fills growing demand for compressed natural gas

By Chris Caya • Sep 2, 2015

To meet growing demand, a new compressed natural gas fueling station is open to the public in
the Town of Tonawanda. Nexus Natural Gas cut the ribbon on its new self-serve station on
Grand Island Boulevard near Kenmore Avenue Tuesday.

Nexus President Chris Guard says compressed natural gas produces fewer emissions and
pollutants. He says the price is more stable than gasoline or diesel.
“Oil prices are controlled by foreign actions, government decisions, all those things. With natural
gas, there’s so much gas in the ground around here that it really is pretty much consistent year
after year. And it should be for over a decade,” Guard said.
Nexus, a consortium of seven local transportation companies, received a $570,000 grant from
the New York Power Authority to build the station, which cost nearly $3 million.
