West Chazy, New York
Thirty trucks a day each buying 200 gallon would be 6000 gallon per day. Most fuel retailers work on a margin of a few cents per gallon. Let's be generous and say ten cents. Six hundred per day has to cover the labor for the attendants and the ownership cost of the facilities. The only real profit in that business is selling snacks and sundries. At 30 trucks per day, there isn't enough volume to support investing in a new pump system. Your comments are kind of like someone claiming farmers are all rich because food prices are high in the store.
