‘The Energy of Possibility and a Fuel That Can Power a Clean Environment’
Southern California Gas has unveiled its first company-branded, public-access compressed natural gas fueling station at its operating base in Lancaster, Los Angeles County. The retail facility is open 24 hours a day and features a fast-fill dispenser to serve both fleets and individual owners of natural gas vehicles.
It is the first SoCalGas CNG station to prominently carry the utility company’s badge. The firm is promoting an average CNG price of about $2 per GGE – gasoline gallon equivalent or GGE, “in addition to tremendous air quality benefits.”
“We consider affordable, abundant, domestically produced natural gas as the energy of possibility and a fuel that can power a clean environment and propel our nation toward energy independence,” SoCalGas customer solutions Rodger Schwecke said in a release.

The station is one of 19 CNG fueling outlets operated by SoCalGas supporting a utility fleet of more than 1,000 NGVs. Eleven are public access.
