GreenBiz: Kwik Trip commits to natural gas

In the past, many vehicle manufacturers said they would produce more natural gas vehicles if the fuel was available in more places.

Meanwhile, fuel station owners said they’d offer more natural gas if more vehicles ran on it.

Kwik Trip, a La Crosse-based convenience and fuel chain, wants to change that discussion.

“We don’t like to hear statements like that,” said Chad Hollett, director of Kwik Trip’s distribution division. “It can lead to the conclusion that the problem is unsolvable. We don’t believe that is so.

“Kwik Trip has decided to take the lead and connect the dots in our tri-state region (Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa, where the company is known as Kwik Star). We want to create a functional infrastructure for natural gas.”
