Leaders from Love’s Travel Stops yesterday celebrated the addition of a compressed natural fueling station in Burbank, Ohio. This marks the third U.S. state in which the company is present offering fast-fill CNG after Oklahoma y Texas. In the near future, it is expected that the firm will debut clean fuel locations in Arizona, New Mexico, Arkansas y Georgia.
“Our CNG network is rapidly expanding as the demand for this lower-cost fueling alternative increases in Ohio and across the nation,” said Bill Cashmareck, general manager of natural gas at Love’s. “Burbank is an ideal location for us to introduce CNG in Ohio because a high volume of professional drivers and motorists can take advantage of the cost savings.”
Ohio state Sen. Troy Balderson attended the ribbon cutting for the new CNG facility. He and state Rep. Sean O’Brien have introduced a bill that would create financial incentives for those who purchase or convert to alternative fuel vehicles. O’Brien said the opening of additional CNG facilities supports the message of the bill: “It is my hope that investments such as this, coupled with the passage of House Bill 336, will help all of Ohio to become a national leader in the use of alternative fuels for transportation.”
Illinois-based Dillon Transport will be the anchor customer at the Burbank location. The transport company operates more than 400 trucks and 700 trailers nationwide. The opening of the new station has allowed them to designate 20 CNG trucks to the Burbank area.
