Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE) has partnered with Quarles Petroleum, Inc., a Mid-Atlantic fleet fuel station operator, to add natural gas fueling services at selected Quarles station locations.

Quarles operates approximately 125 fueling stations around the clock, serving commercial customers in strategic urban areas of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and North Carolina.

“Many of our customers are interested in natural gas-powered vehicles for their fleets,” Quarles president Ben Wafle says in a Clean Energy release.

Clean Energy says it expects initially to add natural gas fueling at several existing Quarles outlets in the Richmond, Va. and Washington Dulles International Airport areas.

Natural gas can help fleets cut costs, add fuel diversity, reduce harmful emissions, and help reduce dependence on imported oil, says Clean Energy national accounts and infrastructure VP Greg Roche.

Natural gas is currently priced at $1.50 or better per gallon less than diesel or gasoline (depending upon local markets).

Quarles, Clean Energy notes, began as a one-truck family oil business in 1940 and is today a third-generation, still family-owned and operated corporation employing some 250 people across seven states.

‘The use of natural gas fuel not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 30% in light-duty vehicles and 23% in medium to heavy-duty vehicles, but also significantly reduces costs,’ Clean Energy Fuels noted on November 30. ‘Month after month, CNG fuel continues to offer substantial savings to consumers and is currently priced up to $1.50 or more per gallon lower than diesel or gasoline, depending upon local markets. This photo, taken in November 2011 at a Clean Energy CNG fueling station in Chicago (co-located at a Marathon fueling station), offers a stark visual reminder of those savings.’
