Gas Stations in the US

The Gas Stations industry has experienced a moderate amount of volatility over the past five years. As more Americans returned to work, total vehicle miles increased, bolstering purchases of gasoline. Additionally, as per capita disposable income continued to improve, some consumers traded up to premium fuel, which is priced higher than lower-octane fuel. However, significant drops in the world price of crude oil resulted in substantial revenue loss in the latter half of the period. Looking forward, oil prices are expected to rise and flow through to retail prices, driving up revenue, and consumers are anticipated to absorb price increases as they return to the road. Nevertheless, volume sales of gasoline are forecast to decline, threatening industry growth.

This industry comprises gas stations that retail automotive fuels, offer repair services and sell replacement parts and accessories. Gas stations that operate convenience stores on their premises are included in the Gas Stations with Convenience Stores industry (IBISWorld report 44711).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
