Grey and Dufferin Counties Welcome Third Swipe & Go in Rural Ontario

DUNDALK, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 20, 2007) - FS PARTNERS will celebrate with the local Dundalk community and surrounding area residents at the grand opening ceremony for the Dundalk Swipe & Go facility this Friday, Aug. 24 located at the corner of County Rd. 9 and Hwy. 10.

Immediately after the ribbon cutting ceremony at 1:30 p.m., gas prices will be reduced by 20 cents per litre so customers can economically fill up their vehicles until 6:00 p.m. that evening. A portion of the sales from the day will be donated to the Dundalk Dance Association of which Jeremy and Jennifer Luxton, owners of the Swipe & Go, are involved. The Mayor of the Township of Melancthon Debbie Fawcett and The Mayor of the Township of Southgate Don Lewis along with Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MP Larry Miller and MPP Bill Murdoch are among the list of speakers coming out to show support for this new innovation in fueling.

The Swipe & Go gas bar is a new concept designed by FS PARTNERS that utilizes the newest technology available. It is a self-serve, remotely monitored gas bar that gives rural Ontario drivers the ability to purchase fuel 24 hours a day, seven days a week using Interac, VISA, MasterCard and FS Fuel Cards. In addition to providing "anytime fueling", this station offers an environmentally friendlier element, using ethanol made from corn and biodiesel made from soybeans.

"We are excited about opening our third Swipe & Go in rural Ontario and know this service will provide the same benefits to local commuters, and cottage goers in Grey and Dufferin Counties as it has in other parts of the province," says FS PARTNERS Vice President of Energy Marketing and Operations Andrew Troyer. "Residents of Dundalk and surrounding area will now have the convenience of buying gas close to home at any time of day or night."

In the past year, FS PARTNERS has partnered up with local entrepreneurs to bring this service to the communities of Mitchell, Alma and now Dundalk.

FS PARTNERS is one of the largest distributors of energy products in southern and central Ontario, serving over 12,000 customers. FS PARTNERS also provides products and services in agronomy and grain marketing. Please visit www.fspartners.ca for more information on Swipe & Go and FS PARTNERS.
