Just a reminder - don’t forget to answer our PumpTalk poll and let us know what you want to read about!
Last week, we looked at how gasoline gets from crude oil to the pump at the station. But how does the station even get there in the first place?
I checked in with the folks in our Network Planning Group ("network" referring to our network of stations, not our computer network) to see how they plan the growth of our station network. I expected to see a lot of Sim City being played. Surprisingly, that was not the case. They use a lot more math and science rather than a city planning game where you can wipe out your downtown with an alien attack. Score one for the Network Planning Group!
Darryl was my contact there; he explained to me the lengthy process for getting a Petro-Canada station into a neighbourhood.
