We have known that convenience store chain Kwik Trip is coming to the Twin Ports for months. Now we know they will also be bringing alternative fuel with them.

Kwik Trip says they will offer compressed natural gas at one of its new stations in Superior.

On Thursday, the convenience store chain hosted an educational seminar for potential customers. 

The territory manager says adding natural gas to the mix offers three big benefits. 

"The first being that it's a domestic fuel, it's produced here in the United States. The second being that it's better for the environment than your traditional petroleum products," Jeff Reichling said. "The third being it's extreme cost savings for these companies."

Kwik Trip will open eight locations in the Twin Ports this year, expanding to the area for the first time. 

Of their 400 stores across Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa 25 locations have natural gas capabilities.
