SourceLine News & Insights

A couple of topics we addressed in earlier newsletters have continued to unfold. Here’s a look at what’s new. 

Recap: In the article “Coming Soon to an Intersection Near You” we reported that chains including Casey’s, Kum & Go, Royal Farms, Sheetz, Wawa and more had announced intentions to open new stores or raze and rebuild stores outside of their current traditional footprint.

Update: Since the original article, many more expansion announcements have emerged. Among them:

Hydrogen’s Potential As a Long-Haul Fuel 

Recap: In the article “5 Factors Affecting the Viability of Hydrogen as a Long-Haul Fuel” that appeared in the May-June issue of SourceLine, we indicated that state and federal efforts to accelerate hydrogen adoption have intensified. At that time, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) was reviewing proposals to fund $7 billion worth of projects that would establish Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs (H2Hubs) to accelerate the commercial-scale deployment of hydrogen. 

Update: The DOE selected seven projects from the following regions: 

Mid-Atlantic (Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey) 

Appalachia (West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania) 


Gulf Coast (Texas) 

Heartland (Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota) 

Midwest (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan) 

Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Montana)
