LAPLACE — The Pilot truck stops in LaPlace and St. Rose are among 19 locations temporarily closing following the bankruptcy of fuel retailer Mountain Express Oil Co.

“Mountain Express Oil Co. (MEX) and its affiliates are ceasing operations due to chapter 7 liquidating bankruptcy. As a result, 19 of MEX’s dealer locations within our network are temporarily closed. Pilot Company will continue serving our valued customers at our more than 800 locations across North America,” a Pilot spokesperson told CDLLife.

LaPlace, St. Rose, and two stores and Minden are the only Louisiana locations impacted by the closure.
