Consumers who recognize that retail competition saves them money will have to love what the Kwik Trip Wisconsin-based chain of convenience stores is quietly building...

They've opened their 28th compressed natural gas (CNG) station. The most recently added locations include Davenport, Iowa, and Lake Mills and Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The chain opened its first CNG location in April 2012 and has since developed a functional CNG fueling infrastructure throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.

As a privately held company, Kwik Trip has expanded its fuel offerings using its own internal resources and expertise. By bringing natural gas to the market, it has positioned itself to provide a more convenient and affordable fueling solution to the public. 

Kwik Trip's own distribution fleet, Convenience Transportation, runs a fleet of 65 Class 8 natural gas vehicles, with plans to eventually convert the entire fleet to natural gas. Additionally, the company utilizes 42 light duty natural gas vehicles.

Kwik Trip plans to open an additional four CNG sites this fall.  Look  for other C-store chains to start replicating the process.
