(SELLERSBURG) - The opening of Indiana's first liquefied natural gas refueling station has officials touting the use of the alternative fuel.

A ceremony was held Tuesday marking the opening of the station just off Interstate 65 in Sellersburg, a few miles north of Louisville, Ky.

Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition director Kellie Walsh says the state started 2013 with six natural-gas stations, all of which sold compressed natural gas.

Walsh tells the News and Tribune that the Sellersburg site is Indiana's 15th natural-gas station and the first with the super-cold liquefied gas.

State Rep. Randy Frye of Greensburg says the state is encouraging trucking companies to convert semis to natural gas with $15,000 tax credits.
