People living in Nathalia will no longer have to worry about buying fuel only during business hours thanks to a new 24/7 service station.SIONNIE KELLY August 15, 2014 5:12am
Nathalia Fuel and Gas opened on Monday and is the second service station in Nathalia and the only one that offers around-the-clock access to fuel.
Nathalia Fuel and Gas manager David Vaughan said it took a year of planning and six months of construction to get the fuel station up and running.
‘‘It’s taken a while to pull this together, but it has been a worthwhile process,’’ he said.
Mr Vaughan owns Nathalia Fertiliser and Grain and said opening a service station was a good fit for him because his business had transport trucks that used fuel.
‘‘I was drawn to the project because I’m a farmer and businessman in Nathalia,’’ he said.
Mr Vaughan said before opening the 24/7 petrol station, Nathalia residents had to travel to Shepparton or Echuca if they had not bought fuel during business hours.
‘‘You have people who work late and general retail hours don’t always fit in with them, so this will be a good fit for them too,’’ he said.
‘‘I think it’s going to bring money from other districts into the community, which will only make the community better off.
‘‘I’m very pro-Nathalia and I want to see Nathalia develop and grow and be a modern town.’’
The service station accepts credit, debit and Shell cards and in two to three months time it will start supplying the community with LPG.
