In February 2017, a strange malpractice was brought up to the knowledge of the U.S fuel retail industry and fuel customers. A Nebraska c-store company was accused of installing deceptive fuel price signs at six of its sites along the I-80 transcontinental freeway near Grand Island. The signs advertised fuel at a price significantly lower to what other gas stations were offering in the area. However, in actuality, the company offered the low price fuel only at limited pumps at each of its six sites. Continue reading
Diesel has long carried the stigma of being a “mucky” fuel. Black clouds of exhaust that would spurt from accelerating semis, buses and dump trucks mainly contributed to establishing this negative view of the less-loved child of the United States’ very much beloved motor-fuel family.

The purpose of a convenience store is to provide customers with the ease of purchasing items while on the road. Convenience stores used to rely on tobacco and gas sales but since cigarette consumption is on a decline and gas prices are stable, c-store owners now wish to adopt more cost-effective ways to increase revenue. Although internal stores generate reasonable income, the products on the shelves already have a low profit margin. This is why owners have now turned to a lucrative method of adding food service programs to their c-stores. Continue reading

Electric cars have been around for a very long time, but they always felt more like an ideal to aspire toward than a practical product—until now that is. CNBC predicts that electric car sales will rise to 30% of the entire pie by 2040. To put that in perspective, you can expect to be looking at 36 million electric cars on roads by 2025. This has been epitomized in Elon Musk’s attempt to achieve a sustainable energy economy, with Tesla Motors producing a large number of new and advanced models of electric cars. Continue reading
