Retail fuel margins jump $0.127 per gallon
Retail fuel margins jumped $0.127 per gallon this week to $0.357 per gallon, according to the weekly OPIS report. That is the second weekly gain, and one of the largest retail fuel margin increases of the year. Retail fuel teams have now seen retail fuel margins increase $0.196 per gallon since mid-October.
From a fuel price management perspective, this is a great news for the fuel retailer, who now may have enough margin to help offset the decreased volumes from the peak travel time of year, and the poor margins of July, August and September.
