A Familiar Story
As a gas station owner, you lock into a long-term contract with a dealer in order to ensure that your product is available for your customers. Then, the distributor's prices continue to increase until it becomes financially crippling for you to continue honoring your end of the contract.
Fortunately, the law is set up to protect you. The U.S. Petroleum Marketing Practices Act, established in 1978, regulates the contracts between the parties of gasoline contracts. It limits the ways in which contracts can be extended, cancelled, and renewed. Most importantly, it is a law that we can use to help make sure your gasoline contracts are handled fairly.
We can help stop price gouging so you can resume your business.
