Petroleum retailing has undergone dramatic changes in the last decade. It is one of the most highly competitive - and increasingly complex - retail industries in Canada. The neighbourhood gas station has changed forever. Petroleum marketing and retailing has evolved from a limited-hour, relatively predictable business, to a 24 hour-a-day ever-changing endeavour. The industry is capital-intense, technologically complex and makes significant management demands on those that participate in it.
Individual site owners, regional network operators and large corporations involved in the retail petroleum industry are all grappling with:
Increased reliance on convenience store revenue and food partner alliances for profitability
Constantly evolving product offerings
Shrinking fuel margins
An increasingly onerous development approval process
