Fuel Retailer Highlights

In a session titled “2023 Fuel Retailers of the Year,” award recipients Sheetz and OnCue were represented by Scott Minton, director of business development for OnCue Marketing, and Brian Renaud, director of retail fuel pricing and analytics for Sheetz.

In the session, both Minton and Renaud discussed current industry trends and challenges that retailers may encounter when it comes to fuel retail.

OnCue has been increasingly considering alternative fuel at its locations, as it has already upgraded two EV sites and is looking into upgrading more soon.

The chain is also in the permitting process for a hydrogen solution, Minton noted, in addition to blended and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) offerings.

“As we move forward, the industry will see fewer gallons, but the best retailers will increase or maintain their gallons,” said Minton. “America is best at innovating when we have to.”

Minton also noted that retailers will continue to innovate, whether than comes in the form of alternative fuel, EV charging or other solutions.
