Arkansas Energy Office awards grants for CNG stations

The Arkansas Energy Office is awarding two $235,000 grants to develop compressed natural gas — or CNG — fueling stations in Conway and Little Rock.

The office said in a news release that the grants will go to the City of Little Rock and to Satterfield Oil Company. The funding will be used to add CNG to existing fuel stations in both cities.

Supporters of CNG say it is less expensive than gasoline, burns more cleanly than gas and will reduce the use of foreign oil in the United States.

The Arkansas Energy Office is a division of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission.​
