Murphy USA operates 1,700 stores under the Murphy USA, Murphy Express and QuickChek banners. In the third quarter of 2022, Murphy USA reported net income of $219.5 million, up from the $104 million in net income for the same quarter in 2021.

Murphy USA stations are typically near Walmarts, while Murphy Express stores are stand-alone gas stations and c-stores. Murphy USA stations tend to be smaller, kiosk-format stores, while Murphy Express stations are larger, traditional convenience-store formats. It operates in 27 states.
