A station where the public can fill vehicles fueled by compressed natural gas is opening in Raleigh, where officials hope it will encourage people to use the cleaner form of transportation. Officials hope that the station will open in January.

About 100 compressed-natural-gas vehicles, mostly owned by the city of Raleigh, gas company PSNC Energy and Duke University, are in use in the Raleigh-Durham area.

The gas vehicles can be filled at 15 stations around the state, but the stations aren't typically open to the public.
