As a veteran of biodiesel marketing and distribution over the past decade, my first suggestion for the current state of the biodiesel industry is to “get back on message”.  

For the industry in the residential heating market we must all try to rationalize where we go from here when there are price swings from a volatile market, RFS and biodiesel tax credit uncertainity, and fradulent RINs to contend with. However, the opportunity remains for retail fuel distributors to rebrand and grow their business by embracing biofuel. We are hopeful others will highlight the successes and take advantage of the important opportunity they have to move forward to support a renewable, clean-burning, premium performance, domestic fuel.

With the extreme weather conditions the Midwest and Eastern states are facing significant propane shortages. On January 19th 26 Midwest and Eastern states declared an Emergency Declaration 49 CPR 390.23. Then on January 21st 11 more Southern states also declared the Emergency Declaration. In November and December propane demands were at its highest recorded level followed by the arctic cold weather polar vortex causing these states to issue these Emergency Declarations.



With the high number of Americans relying on propane for their home heat we are out pacing the already low inventories.  Propane will continue to be in high demand. A key factor to the shortage is steaming from transportation issues. With the Emergency declarations in affect this will allow drivers to increase their hours. The issues are stemming from the insufficient propane storage, pipeline maintenance, reduced capability to transport by rail, and a change of flow of energy in North America.

Until a solution to the ongoing...

Propane distributors suddenly find themselves facing a set of conditions that could impact availability and create price spikes in certain markets.



The U.S. is now producing its largest volume of natural gas liquids. New sources have had to search for a way to get the product to market while offering some of the best pricing seen in a decade.

Infrastructure and pipelines have lagged and recent events are beginning to impact how the new liquids market will evolve:

-Pipelines are reversing

-Demand has spiked in the Midwest

-The export market is setting records

Experienced retailers have weathered storms in the past, but certainly didn’t anticipate such problems with the increase in liquids production.

The bottom line is: The fact that the petrochemical and export markets are, and will continue to be the primary users of “our” propane. While the spot market over the last few years has been an opportunity to diversify sourcing, this coming winter season may...

As a retail fuel distributor you are swamped with customer concerns, no heat calls, fuel deliver- the list goes on and on. Although you know marketing is important, it usually doesn’t make it to the top of your priority list! Here are some quick tips to make marketing a part of your everyday operations:



1.       Make every customer interaction count. Every service vice, fuel delivery, and customer call is a chance to engage your customers. Your frontline employees wield enormous influence and the impressions they make are far-reaching. Make the most of those interactions with promotional messages.

2.       Cross-promote to your existing customers. This is your “low-hanging fruit” Provide them with information and the opportunity to sign up for additional products and services.

3.       Leverage a Refer A-Friend program. Encourage your loyal customers to promote your company for cash or discounts-a very cost effective, money saving way to gain new customers.

A cap program is simply a program to protect customers against rising fuel prices in a volatile market. It acts like an insurance plan against market volatility and price uncertainty.



Residential customers get peace of mind with price protection and control over their energy budget. They benefit from lower prices in a down market, but are locked in at a maximum price in a rising market. Distributors protect their gallons with paper options on the market for locked in, more stable margins on a segment of their most loyal customers. With one call distributors can lock in their gallons, secure them with option positions, and set-up a marketing plan to communicate the program to their customer base.

A cap program for a retailer simply offers the security of upside protection in an ever-changing market. It’s an excellent way of establishing a healthy margin, while building customer relationships by offering an insurance program to a segment of loyal accounts.
