SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Questar Gas plans to beef up the compressed-gas refueling network along Interstate 15 from Salt Lake City to St. George.
Gov. Jon Huntsman is making the announcement at a Sinclair station in Orem that sells compressed natural gas.
Officials expect funding from the economic stimulus package in Congress will be available to add to the compressed-gas stations along I-15.
Those 25 stations were largely built on government funding to begin with.
Questar Gas president and chief executive Ron Jibson says the improvements will boost the natural gas pump capacity of the corridor by nearly half.
Questar plans to open two new stations in southern Utah. It also plans to upgrade heavily used stations around Salt Lake City and in Ogden.
