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

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.
