A new compressed natural gas fueling station for county vehicles opens in Midvale, Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2015. Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams said by switching diesel trucks over to natural gas, the county will displace 500,000 gallons of diesel fuel. According to county air quality officials, the fuel changeover will result in a reduction of 3.1 million pounds of carbon dioxide from the air. That decrease is equivalent to taking 310 passenger vehicles off the road each year.
