Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores on Friday will start celebrating the grand openings of six new compressed natural gas fueling stations around the state.

Love's plans to add CNG at 10 of its Oklahoma locations this year as part of its partnership with natural gas advocate Chesapeake Energy Corp.

The first grand opening will be Friday in Chickasha, one of five Love's stores currently offering CNG.

“We recognize the importance of expanding our fueling options to meet the diverse needs of our customers,” said Jenny Love Meyer, Love's vice president of communications. “As more and more corporate and government entities convert their fleets to CNG, we believe demand on the commercial and consumer side will escalate accordingly...

Update. Turns out that converting a nomral automobile to run off CNG costs about $3000 and puts a large tank in your trunk, making it useless for luggage.Now I understand what he means when he says, but we need your help'!That $3k is just about enough to buy all the gas I need for a year even at todays inflated prices. I also suspect that once the use of CNG goes up as everyone converts to it, the price of CNG will also go up.Yeah but we won't be sending our money to terrorists. I'm not so sure we are doing that now. This whole idea of keeping dollars at home is reminiscent of past experiences with auto manufacturers. They implored you to buy American. Then we found out there were lots of parts in those cars that were not made in America. Guess it was okay for the auto manufacturers NOT to buy American'. That was only good for American consumers. If a transfer of wealth were a potential problem for us, it is one of the few problems that can be handled by government. Trouble is government has caused the problem. If we do not want to send money overseas then we need to find and use domestic oil. Going to wind turbines and CNG is not a total solution. It might help but not when it costs me money I don't need to spend.No, the bottom line is, where can I get the best deal for my dollar to supply my energy needs. If the government does not care if that means I have to buy from terrorists, who am I to complain.The government needs to stop blaming others for its screw-ups and folk like Mr. Pickens need to stop taking advantage of us.
