SPREAD THE WORD TO END THE R-WORD

millions of people with “Disabilities” and their families.
Take a pledge and put an end to the R-word www.r-word.org


This column is for independent gasoline dealers and station owners

First,
in order to keep Below Cost law in Florida, it takes a lot of time, money and a strong association to fight the challenges to stop the repeal of the Motor Fuels Marketing Practices Act (Below Cost) from the likes of Wal-Mart, Murphy Oil etc every year.
Our legislators in Tallahassee especially the newly elected ones have to be informed of the benefits that the Motor Fuels Marketing Practices Act (Below Cost) provides.
Florida has one of the lowest pre tax gasoline prices in the nation due to competition from thousands of independent gasoline stations. The repeal of Below Cost will eliminate independent gasoline stations through predatory pricing by the Big Boxers, Hypermarketers and Oil Companies and less competition will encourage high gasoline prices.

Second,
the independent gasoline station dealers and owners who do not belong to an association (Gasoline Retailers Association
of Florida) should support the association as members to continue the benefits of the independent gasoline stations. There is no free ride. For information contact Pat Moricca @ 407-774-9700.
Your voice in Tallahassee is very important to our elected officials informing them information about our industry. You can be sure Costco, Wal-Mart, Sams Club, Publix, Albertsons, BJ’s etc., and the Oil Companies are feeding them information.

Any eligible businessman or woman, who joins, and participates in on-going programs, will find that his/her savings in overhead costs will more than justify the dues that each member pays. Membership does not cost, it pays.
