Gas Stations



Due to the uncertain times brought about by the COVID-19 outbreak, the demand for gas has been severely affected.

This comes as regions are put on lockdowns and travel is restricted. A weekly report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) even reveal that the demand is close to a 30 year low.

On the bright side, the continued increase in grocery sales from convenience stores in gas stations have become a boost to the industry, all thanks to the government designating the shops as essential businesses.

Because of this, many convenience store owners are scrambling to provide products and services to their customers amid the threat of COVID-19.

To fulfill the rapidly changing needs of the customers, many gas stations and convenience stores are starting to adapt several measures. One of which is restocking on more staple items, including paper towels, toilet paper, milk, and bread.

Those who already have mobile apps and online ordering capacities in place also begin featuring curbside pickup options for their customers.

Others who are not so technologically inclined are filling the gap by partnering with various delivery services, including Uber Eats and Door Dash.

Most convenience stores and gas stations are mitigating the risks of coronavirus spread by inserting simple yet effective safety measures inside the store such as plexiglass shields at checkout counters and more stringent sanitizing policies.

Although the rest of 2020 still remains uncertain, it is likely that convenience stores will continue to be essential.

It also pays to keep ahead of the curve and introduce more technological solutions to customers, not only to fulfill the safety precautions of the ongoing situation but also to upgrade the store to a post-pandemic design.
