Man I hope he does it.

That would be great; however....I once gave the marina sh!t about the price of their fuel and he yelled at me for a few minutes while pointing out:

"I cant buy 3,000 gallons at a time for a discount, and once I pay the insurance policies I MUST have to sell fuel on the water and the night time help gets done stealing from me...I don't make but a few cents a gallon, so if you think I'm too expensive, go buy your fuel somewhere else'!

Itís hard to find a fuel retailer who will admit to making any money. Somehow they seem to get by. (Insert sarcasm emoji here)

I am glad I fuel up at a local cardlock station - only 4 stations in my area (no TV's, no lines, no credit card skimers, no BS mini market, once a month bill). Fuel and GO.

Price of Gas is slightly higher than lowest station. Price of Diesel is much less than retail stations.

I just ordered a 48 gallon AUX tank for my truck. Now I will get over 1,000 non-towing miles between fill-ups. Less frequency (~2.7x) at fuel stops (with still no TV Ads).
