This course helps petroleum marketers and distributors, end-users and retailers, stay ahead of today’s unpredictable fuel marketplace.

  • As Mexico's deregulation approaches in the next two years, there will be huge opportunities for U.S. fuel marketers in Mexico.
  • If you are in California, you must understand Cap and Trade and the impact it is having on rack prices throughout California and fuel supply agreements!
  • Benchmarks and fuel-buying formulas are more complicated than ever before, especially ones using spot or index-based pricing as a basis for rack transactions, or complex “formulas.”
  • RINs – what are they? Why you need to know, and how they can hugely affect fuel-buying programs!
