Shoreside Petroleum Opens Essential One in Wasilla
Will cater to retail, commercial and wholesale
ANCHORAGE — Shoreside Petroleum announces the opening of its latest Essential One station in Wasilla. The facility is not your normal “everyday retail gasoline station.” Essential One will offer a much wider array of fuels, including: avgas, heating fuel, propane, regular and supreme gasoline, ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel, and biodiesel. The new station is located at 2858 E. Palmer-Wasilla Highway, near the North Bowl bowling alley. Fuel will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. According to Ken Bobbie, Shoreside’s Marketing Director: “To my knowledge, no station can match the offering of fuels we’ll feature, especially alternative fuels like biodiesel. In fact, Essential One is Alaska’s only retailer of biodiesel.” Bobbie also noted that the facility is unique in that it is designed to serve both the retail customer as well as the commercial market. Essential One sits on a spacious four-acre lot which has excellent ingress and egress and sufficient area to turn around anything from a small passenger car to the largest diesel rigs on the road. And for those customers with large diesel rigs, there are numerous high-flow pumps on site for rapid fuel transfer allowing them to get back on the road in less time. Shoreside Petroleum operates seven Essential One service locations: two in Anchorage, as well as stations in Bird Creek, Cordova, Seward, Wasilla and Whittier.
