ALBUQUERQUE (Nov. 24, 2015) — Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores Inc. has opened a new outlet in Albuquerque, its sixth along Interstate 40 to offer compressed natural gas (CNG) fill-ups for heavy-duty trucks.
The new location in Albuquerque is at Exit 149. Oklahoma City-based Love's said that according to the Alternative Fuels Data Center, Love's is the fourth facility in the city to offer CNG and the seventh in the state.
“Love's now has a total of 16 locations offering Love's fast-fill CNG, and this is our first location with the alternative fuel offering in New Mexico,” said Greg Love, co-CEO of Love's. “Love's has operated in Albuquerque proudly for more than 30 years. Our new store will have the same excellent customer service and our newest amenities.”
In addition to the Albuquerque travel stop — which has a Love's Truck Tire Care center — the company operates Fast-Fill CNG locations along Interstate 40 that include West Memphis, Ark.; Webbers Falls, Okla.; two locations in Oklahoma City; and Amarillo, Texas. An existing Love's in Williams, Ariz., will begin offering fast-fill CNG later this year, the company said, expanding Love's network of locations along Interstate 40 offering CNG to seven.
Love's, founded in 1964, has more than 350 locations in 40 states. The company's Truck Tire Care centers offer roadside assistance, tire care and light mechanical services for professional truck drivers.
