Pacific Fuel and Convenience Summit
Pacific Fuel and Convenience Summit

The Pacific Fuel and Convenience Summit this year was at the Manchester Hyatt Convention center in Downtown San Diego.

Petroleum Realty Group attended and were pleased to see so many friends on the show floor.

The show really is a who’s who of the Gas Station world in Southern California.

Vendors throughout the industry were displaying their goods and services. Of course a show would not be complete without a fuel truck and Person Fuels with their E85 product did not disappoint.

Pacific Fuel and Convenience Summit

New products were in abundance , many vendors were pushing EV chargers and self serve POS systems.

We were happy to see some of the larger Oil companies at the show. Those notable were Marathon, Gulf Oil and Chevron attending the Pacific Fuels and convenience summit.

I really enjoyed this years Summit at the Manchester Hyatt San Diego. I spent a few hours walking the show floor shaking hands with many of the areas familiar faces and characters.

We are very lucky to have such an incredible community in the Petroleum Industry

Timothy Haves, President and Broker Officer Petroleum Realty Group Inc.

California Gas Tax

California already has the nations highest Gas tax at 51 cents per gallon.

That will soon change in July when Governor Newson increases the Gas Tax further to $53.9 cents, a 5.6% increase.

The price of gasoline in the US has increased over 76% since inauguration day January 2021 when the average price of regular gasoline was only $2.33 a gallon. Today the average price is $4.109, which is a staggering increase.

In California however it has become normal for consumers to see prices over $6 a gallon.

California Gas Tax
March 2022, Hollywood CA

The question one wonders is why ? The answer, as ever, is, the world of Politics.

To understand why Politicians are to blame we need to look at the price of barrel oil. The Presidents policy of restricting domestic supply increased the US dependance on imported oil. This restriction began well before the war in Ukraine which has certainly driven up prices. President Biden could have protected the Amercian consumer from rising prices by lifting restriction of domectic production.

The administrations war on fossil fuel is more important than the cost to Americans who were told to “pay the price”.

inflation is at a 40-year high at 8.5%. Americans are digging deep to keep thier heads about water, in additional they Califonia Gas Tax add an additional burden.

The price of a barrel of Oil has risen over 95% since President Biden came to office. January 2021 oil was $55.38 a barrel compared to todays price of $108 a barrel.

What does this mean at the pump ?

By July 2022 Californians will be paying 86c in taxes to the State and Federal government for every gallon. For diesel customers that number rises to $1.34. No wonder food prics have risen so sharply. In addition to the Calfornia Gas Tax which is per gallom based there are sales taxes which are price drive, as the price of gas increases the government gets more money.

The California legislator has shown no signs of delaying the increase in Gas Tax in July. There was a proposed bill to do just that but it did not receive the votes to move forward.

The Federal Government continues with its anti fossil fuel policy and we see no end in sight to the problems in Ukraine.

Common sense would suggest that if you lower the Gas Tax then more gallons would be sold, but with a $100 Billion surplus the California Gas Tax is not so much about raising revenue as it is about control.

The push of course is towards the EV and another major control which his the ban of new combustion engined cars in 2035.

The California Gas Tax whilst hurting the consumer has actually helped the Gas Station owner. Prices have risen so quickly that profit margins are better than ever as Gas Station owners increase margins as prices rise.

Gas Station Broker Petroleum Realty Group Celebrates 10 Years in Business
Petroleum Realty Group Celebrates 10 Years in Business

Petroleum Realty Group, California’s #1 Gas Station Broker celebrated 10 years in business this month. In March 2012 we opened our doors to the Gas Station world having previously worked for other Brokerage Houses.

Our First deal

Looking back at our record there are a few notable deals that jump to mind, starting with our first Sale for AU Energy which was a Shell station on Ventura Blvd in Tarzana. This sale gave us the confindence that we are on to something big and that Petroleum Realty Group was going to be a success.Our

Most Remote

Next was the most remote location and that has to go to the two Station we sold for EH National Bank in Needles CA or Perhaps the closed down Station in Lompoc purchased by Moller Investments Group. If its in California we can sell it. Check out our listings at

Quickest Deal

Quickest traction and a Petroleum Realty Group record would be the purchase of a 76 station on 3rd Street LA by the Berri Brothers, 9 days start to finish and one of those days was Christmas day, look what you can achieve with a willing buyer and seller. We are not sure that we will ever break that record but would love to try. Hard work paid off on that one

Smallest Site

The smallest site for this Gas Station Broker with the largest bang for its buck would defiantly go to the 6000 square foot Conserve Gas Station in Brentwood Los Angeles. $8m got the buyer an iconic site in the most presitgeous location in Southern Califrionia. That old adage location location location was what this site was all about and it will only go up in value in the future.

Biggest Store

Biggest C-store goes to La Media Chevron in Otay Mesa, where the Extra Mile store was some 8000 sqft and included three QSR’s, this transaction might also be the biggest business turn around too as the buyer added a truck stop to the vacant land and the site has to be worth 8x what he paid for it. Another Petroleum Realty Group happy client.

Most leased transactions at once goes to the disposition of the 7-Eleven portfolio for SEI Fuels, 50 sites all leased in less than 6 months, a huge effort from all involved and the last time our fax machine rang off the hook day and night

It has been a thrill to work with California Gas Station operators these last 10 years and I am looking froward to making new records and new friends.

Petroleum Realty Group is stronger than ever and continues to buy and sell Gas Stations through out the state of California. We are the state #1 Gas Station Broker

Petroleum Realty Group Celebrates 10 Years in Business, WOW , I am so proud.

Timothy Haves President and Broker Officer 949-636-3961

A quick thank you to all our friends who have sent us messages of congratulations , we are proud to be part of the Gas Station community and look forward to working with you for another 10 years.

Finally, we would also like to thank our partners who make the process seem so professional , Pam Manning at the Escrow Spectrum and Liz Bergold and David Nobel at Ticor Title, without your support and hard work non of our success is achievable.

WPMA Conference Las Vegas

This years WMPA conference in Las Vegas was held as usual in the Mirage Hotel convention center. Petroleum Realty Group attended the event to meet old friends and stay up to date on everything that is new in the world of Gas Stations.

Despite the Covid requirements we were impressed with the number of booths and of course every part of the industry was represented. We always take particular interest in what is up and coming.

There was a large presence from Marathon Oil as you can see above and we also met with Gulf Oil, VP racing , Extra Mile and Pearson Fuels .

I could write a long list of interesting booths that I visited but the ones the caught my eye the most were the new Electric charges and the self serve point of sale

This Gilbarco level 3 Electric charger is supplied by Western Pump, it is certainly going to be a future consideration for Gas Station owners, I am worried that it needs a 240 amp supply which not every station has and of course a full charge still takes 20-30 mins which is longtime for a customer to be waiting. The electric car is coming so we can not discount this additional revenue source, as Oil prices surge more consumers are going to consider electric cars

Gilbarco have also introduced a new self serve device for the C-Store called Passport Self Serve . You have probably already seen a variation of this in your local super market so it was only a mater of time before the concept came over to the C-store POS. The monthly payments for one of these is far less than you would be paying an employee which bring up the question of who is going to stack the shelves ?

I really enjoyed the WPMA convention this year and look forward to seeing all my friends at next year’s event
