GAIN® Clean Fuel has opened its second compressed natural gas (CNG) station in the U.S. state of Alabama, this time in the southeast city of Dothan. U.S. Gain, a division of U.S. Venture, Inc. partnered with Corridor Clean Fuels™ (CCF) to co-brand the existing CCF station located near Highway 431. Earlier this year, Gain also completed its five-station commitment to Core-Mark.
“Industry partners are playing a vital role in facilitating the growth of the CNG market in America,” said Randy Spence, chief executive officer of Corridor Clean Fuels. “We are excited to partner with U.S. Gain at this station and expand the extensive network of GAIN Clean Fuel stations.”
Dothan serves as the main transportation hub for the southeastern corner of Alabama and is a main corridor for carriers in southwest Georgia and Florida. The location of this station provides convenient access for local, regional and long-haul carriers.
“Even with the lower cost of diesel fuel, many carriers are still converting their fleets to operate on CNG to take advantage of a more stable fuel price and the benefits of lower emissions,” said U.S. Gain General Manager, Bill Renz. “Our goal is to help them make that transition by providing strategic sites beneficial to carriers. Our partnership with Corridor Clean Fuels helps us achieve our mission as we continue building the GAIN Clean Fuel network.”
In addition to providing convenient access, the new location has fast-fill capabilities and will accept fleet cards. The station is also open for use by other fleets and to the general public.
Earlier this year, Core-Mark celebrated the opening of fifth and final GAIN® CNG station that will fuel its fleet of alternative energy trucks. The station, in Tampa, Florida, was built through a partnership with U.S. Gain, a division of U.S. Venture, which owns and operates the GAIN Clean Fuel brand.
Core-Mark’s commitment to a CNG program began with an initial conversion of its fleet. Today, there are 210 Core-Mark CNG tractors on the road with more planned in the future.
