Oklahoma retailer celebrates CNG milestone
OnCue Express has sold 3 million gallons of compressed natural gas since it started offering the gasoline alternative in 2009.
Stillwater-based fuel retailer OnCue Express celebrated a milestone Thursday.
OnCue has sold 3 million gallons of compressed natural gas since it began offering the gasoline alternative about three years ago.
“This is the most of any Oklahoma private-sector retailer and a national milestone,” CEO Jim Griffith said at the OnCue station at 1 NW 23 in Oklahoma City.
Gov. Mary Fallin said the milestone is great news for OnCue and Oklahoma.
“OnCue, in my opinion, is a national leader,” she said, praising the company for investing in CNG fueling infrastructure.
OnCue opened its first CNG fueling station near NW 50 and Western Avenue in 2009. Now it offers CNG at 13 locations around the state.
Griffith said CNG, which costs about half as much as gasoline, has saved OnCue customers more than $6 million over the past three years.
“That is money back in Oklahomans' pockets and in our state economy,” he said.
Griffith said OnCue is hoping to add 10 more CNG fueling stations in Oklahoma in 2013, but declined to discuss possible locations.
