ATLANTA -- The state's largest natural gas fueling station has opened in DeKalb County.

Gas South teamed with American Fueling Systems station to market alternative fuel options to prospective fleets. The new facility opened on Thursday to the public and commercial vehicles on Buford Highway in DeKalb County.

DeKalb County has already begun fueling its compressed natural gas garbage truck at the location. Other fleets such as UPS, AT&T, and other area companies are expected to be filling up at the station.

Gas South, a natural gas provider since 2008, now provides fuel to six of metro Atlanta's seven public compressed natural gas stations including Atlanta, Lithonia and Tucker.
