Stillwater-based OnCue Express continues adding compressed natural gas fueling options for its customers.
OnCue will open its fourth CNG fueling station in the Oklahoma City area this week as part of an ongoing partnership with Chesapeake Energy Corp.
The companies previously partnered to open five other CNG stations across the state.
“CNG is affordable, clean and good for Oklahoma and is much more price stable,” OnCue CEO Jim Griffith said. “While unleaded prices are more than $3 per gallon, CNG from OnCue Express has remained $1.39 per gallon since the summer.
“The price difference has been a significant incentive for businesses, schools, cities and individuals to convert to CNG.”
The official opening for OnCue's newest CNG fueling station, at NW 23 and Santa Fe, is set for Thursday.
OnCue also offers CNG at NW 49 and Western, Reno and MacArthur and 9th and Broadway in Edmond.
James Roller, Chesapeake's market development coordinator, said investments in natural gas benefit Oklahoma while reducing the country's dependence on foreign oil.
“It is important that we support the overall natural gas industry in Oklahoma, an industry that provides one in seven state jobs and is the backbone of our economy,” he said. “Dollars spent toward natural gas means more funding for our education system and local communities.”
Chesapeake has converted nearly 700 of its fleet vehicles to run on CNG.
Company officials expect additional CNG fueling options in Oklahoma to entice more drivers and businesses to make the switch as well.
