JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead will be among those on hand for the opening of Teton County's first compressed natural gas station.

Spearheaded by Energy Conservation Works, the natural gas station opening Monday was brought to fruition via a partnership of Lower Valley Energy, the town of Jackson, Teton County, Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities and the Wyoming Business Council.

The station was nearly three years in the making.

Teton County Commissioner Natalia Macker says the state represents collective efforts toward resiliency, commitment to cleaner fuels and support for Wyoming's economy.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, compressed natural gas offers low cost and lower emissions than more traditional gasoline and diesel.
