News Release

GARY, Ind. - South Shore Clean Cities Inc. is proud to announce the official grand opening of Ozinga's latest public fueling station. The event will be 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at Ozinga's facility at 400 Blaine Street.

Please join us as we celebrate the latest development in our nation's energy future. Clean-burning compressed natural gas (CNG) is an affordable American fuel with great possibilities for economic growth in our region. As other fleets make the change to CNG, we can reduce our country's dependence on imported oil and move forward into a more independent future.

Following the ribbon-cutting, Congressman Pete Visclosky and Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson are scheduled share their comments on this step forward for our state.

Many CNG stations already exist along the western shore of Lake Michigan, forming a north-south CNG corridor. This new station in Gary is well-positioned to become America's CNG crossroads as natural gas fueling infrastructure expands east and west along Interstate 80.

Carl Lisek, executive director at South Shore Clean Cities, said, "We are excited to be helping companies like Ozinga make the important transition to alternative fuels, fulfilling our mission to reduce the nation's dependence on imported oil."
