GAIN Clean Fuel CNG Station Opens in Arkansas
On Monday, U.S. Oil announced that it has completed its second of five CNG stations that will be built in partnership with Core-Mark, one of the nation’s largest distributors and marketers of consumer goods in North America. The fast-fill GAIN Clean Fuel station located in Forrest City, Arkansas, will be open to all CNG fleets and the public. “Projects like this have a positive economic impact for the area,” said Forrest City Mayor Bryant. “It’s good for business and it’s also good for Forrest City.” Core-Mark’s commitment to a CNG program began with an initial conversion of its fleet. Today, there are over 140 CNG tractors on the road and another 60 are expected by the middle of next year. In addition to the Arkansas location, three more GAIN Clean Fuel stations are expected to open near other Core-Mark Divisions by the second quarter of 2015. These stations will be located in Sanford, North Carolina; Smyrna, Georgia; and Tampa, Florida. It’s projected that this newest GAIN station will displace the equivalent of 400,000 gallons of diesel fuel in the next year and more than 1.5 million gallons in the next five years. U.S. Oil plans to have more than 100 GAIN Clean Fuel stations operating within the next three years.
