The $474 Billion U.S. petroleum/convenience industry is under attack by the likes of U.S. mass merchandisers, price clubs, large grocery store chains, and home improvement centers, not to mention foreign companies like Luk Oil (Russia), Family Mart Company (Japan), Tesco (Britain), and Avlon (Israel), to name a few.
By 2007 hypermarkets are expected to grow to 6,800 locations and capture a fuels market share of 15.5%. This increase in fuels market share is coming at the expense of the individual owner-operator who does not enjoy the same pricing economies of scale possessed by these 800lb. gorillas.
