  • Wawa set to open its first CNG fueling site in Paulsboro

    January 12, 2016. Wawa is readying its first compressed-natural-gas (CNG) fueling site for a grand opening this February.
    The Wawa, Pennsylvania-based chain's new convenience-store, under construction in Paulsboro, New Jersey, will be its first to offer CNG. Wawa has partnered with South Jersey Gas on the CNG fueling site, which is located next to I-295.
    "We are excited to provide our fuel customers with an alternative to the traditional liquid fuels, through the first Wawa location in our chain to provide CNG," Lori Bruce, public relations manager for Wawa, said.
    South Jersey Gas said CNG-fueled vehicles are 90% quieter than diesel and produce fewer greenhouse gases and other pollutants.
    "We know that use of CNG vehicles is increasing," said Bruce. "We see the opportunity to provide clean-burning natural gas, which historically offers much more stable pricing than liquid fuels."
    Dan Lockwood, manager of stakeholder relations at South Jersey Gas, said that building more CNG fueling infrastructure will spur growth in NGV adoption. "Projects like this one with Wawa are helping to expand the CNG fueling network throughout South Jersey, which will help to further increase use," said Lockwood. He noted that the Paulsboro Wawa CNG site, the first is the area, is ideally located next to major highways. Based on this location's performance, Wawa will determine whether to add more CNG fueling sites to its more than 700-store network, which stretches across six Mid-Atlantic states.
