OnCue on Track to Be Oklahoma's Largest CNG Station Operator
STILLWATER, Okla. -- OnCue Express will open three more compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations by the end of this year. The stations will be located in Del City, Enid and Stillwater, Okla.
OnCue operates several convenience stores in Oklahoma, as well as one location in Kansas. According to the company, once these new stations open, OnCue will become the largest operator of CNG fueling stations in Oklahoma with 13 locations.
"As a local company, we are proud to support Oklahoma's natural gas industry by opening new CNG fueling in the state," said Jim Griffith, CEO of OnCue Express. "The economic and environmental benefits of natural gas as a transportation fuel are well documented, and our company believes that increasing CNG accessibility is the right thing to do for our customers and our country. We hope the addition of more CNG stations will continue to increase demand for this domestic fuel."
Griffith added that OnCue supports opening CNG stations because the fuel is cleaner burning and more affordable than petroleum. "OnCue Express' CNG price has remained at $1.39 for the last 18 months, while unleaded prices have fluctuated between $3 and $4 per gallon," he said.
Oklahoma is one of the U.S. leaders when it comes to CNG stations. Combined, 15 CNG stations will open by the end of the year, and a total of more than 70 locations are expected to open throughout the state by the end of 2012, according to OnCue.
