Where will they be?

Love's has about 280 stores in 39 states. The company is adding CNG fueling stations in Altus, Chickasha, Guthrie, Guymon, Lawton, Norman, Okemah and Webbers Falls. The 10th new location has not been determined, company officials said.

The number of public CNG fueling stations in Oklahoma has grown steadily since state lawmakers enacted alternative fuel legislation two years ago.

“Understanding how the increased demand for domestic natural gas benefits Oklahoma's economy, Oklahoma lawmakers enacted model legislation other states could adopt to spur CNG infrastructure development and natural gas demand creation,” Shinn said “Today, in large part because of the commitment of Love's, Oklahoma is on its way to having over 100 public CNG fueling stations located along major transportation corridors.”

Oklahoma-based Preferred Services will build the new CNG stations for Love's.

“This endeavor is a great example of two leading Oklahoma companies working together and taking solid steps to expand the use of Oklahoma-produced natural gas,” Shinn said.
