Raymond James oil analyst Pavel Molchanov says this is the logical conclusion of a process the company has been going through.
Shedding the green and white gas stations that stretch from New Hampshire to Florida, the vast majority of which are owned by Hess rather than franchisees, will allow the company to broaden exploration and production capabilities.
Mobile gas stations have hit New York. National Guard Col. Richard Goldenberg says the priority will be providing gas to law enforcement agents, firefighters, EMTs and other emergency responders.
Dozens of gas stations are running dry because of a problem with their distributor. Hundreds of small businesses will be without gas until May 1.
I guess my messasge is this….the oil companies are screwin’ us…we know that. But don’t let the local business people do it too you as well. If you’re paying $3.60 or more per gallon….it’s too much.
