GAITHERSBURG, Md. -- Gaithersburg, Md.-based OPIS defines “price differential,” measured in cents per gallon, as how a brand’s typical store on a typical day is priced relative to its direct competition.
In 2018, Costco again led the gas brands with a more than 22-CPG differential. Other brands are a who’s who of 2018 M&A news, including Quik Stop, the former Kroger c-store chain that was acquired by EG Group, and Arco, which Marathon Petroleum acquired along with Andeavor.
