Love's Travel Stops is ready to go nationwide with compressed natural gas.

The Oklahoma City-based company Thursday announced plans to add CNG fueling at its travel stop on Interstate 71 near Burbank, Ohio.

Love's will offer fast-fill CNG for heavy-duty trucks as well as fueling for passenger vehicles at that store by midsummer.

Bill Cashmareck, general manager of natural gas at Love's, said an agreement with Illinois-based Dillon Transport helped spur the company to move forward with plans for CNG in Ohio.

“Dillon Transport will be the anchor customer at the Burbank Love's location,” Cashmareck said.

Ohio has 14 public CNG fueling stations, according to the U.S. Department of Energy's Alternative Fuels Data Center. There are 74 in Oklahoma, which has less than a third of Ohio's population, according to the 2010 Census.

The Burbank location will be a public access travel stop offering heavy-duty CNG to all professional fleets and light-duty CNG to passenger vehicles.
