Love’s Travel Stops Opens First CNG Station in Ohio
On Monday, leaders from Love’s Travel Stops celebrated the addition of one of the area’s newest CNG facilities in Burbank, Ohio. Ohio State Sen. Troy Balderson attended the ribbon cutting for the new CNG facility. He and state Rep. Sean O’Brien have introduced a bill (H.B. 336) that would create financial incentives for those who purchase or convert to alternative fuel vehicles. O’Brien said the opening of additional CNG facilities supports the message of the bill. “It is my hope that investments such as this, coupled with the passage of House Bill 336, will help all of Ohio to become a national leader in the use of alternative fuels for transportation,” said Rep. O’Brien. The CNG station is Love’s first CNG location in Ohio and its 10th overall. Illinois-based Dillon Transport will be the anchor customer at the Burbank location. The transport company operates more than 400 trucks and 700 trailers nationwide. The opening of the new station has allowed them to designate 20 CNG trucks to the Burbank area.
