KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The first natural gas station open to the public is now operating in Kansas City.

The $2.1 million station that opened Monday is a public/private partnership with Clean Energy, which owns about 500 natural gas stations in the U.S.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/13tvZil ) the station will be used to fuel the city’s natural-gas vehicles. But it will also offer three pumps every day for the public. A fourth pump will be added later.

The city already had four stations for its fleet of 300 vehicles.

Peter Grace, senior vice president at Clean Energy, says the company plans to open other stations near Worlds of Fun and downtown Kansas City. They will not be a partnership with the city.
