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

Consider this...
  1. Fuel buyers can no longer ignore RINs – Renewable Identification Numbers – they affect buying costs for everyone across the United States.

  2. There are going to be more significant changes in downstream marketing – especially in the East, where Hess is pulling out of wholesale marketing in the next year. That is going to have a tremendous impact on supply for many fuel buyers.

  3. 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.

  4. The availability of cheaper crude at select refineries could impact your long-term price planning and negotiation strategies.
