Financial Advantages of Buying Wholesale Fuel vs. Retail Fuel

Automotive fuel tankers shipping fuel.Getting wholesale fuel means you get a large quantity of fuel for your job site or fleet all at once. Your other option is to drive to the gas station, fill up a vehicle or tank, and drive back to your job site or get your workday started from there. But no matter what business your fleet is in, you can benefit from choosing wholesale fuel over buying fuel at a gas station. Discover four financial advantages of buying wholesale fuel to help you decide whether wholesale is better for your business than retail.

Wholesale Is a More Cost-Effective Fuel

The price per gallon at the gas station is rarely as low as the price per gallon from a wholesale fuel distributor. That’s because retail fuel companies add markups and taxes to their prices. 

When you manage a fleet or have many pieces of equipment that need fuel, all of the extra charges can add up. Even if the monthly billable amount puts you off at first, buying wholesale can save you money in the long run.

Distributors Price Competitively

Companies like Reeder Distributors are business partners for fleets, industrial companies, government facilities, and more. We want to work with you to provide the fuel you need at a cost that makes sense for your company. Distributors will offer wholesale fuel at a competitive price to retail stores so that everyone benefits from the partnership. 

However, retail fuel prices reflect gas station competition, which often doesn’t make sense for businesses with large fleets.

Wholesale Costs Are More Predictable

To keep wholesale fuel costs competitive, many distributors provide flexible payment options for buying in bulk. Customers can often secure a monthly billable amount after getting a quote and can hang onto that rate no matter how high fuel prices go during the contract. You can more easily budget for fuel costs for the year, which can make paying for other essential facets of your business easier, too.

Wholesale Fuel Can Make Your Business More Efficient

When you buy fuel in bulk, your fleet won’t have to veer off delivery routes or stop by the gas station to fill up before heading to a job site. Having fuel in bulk ensures that your projects stay on track with fewer setbacks due to fuel concerns. It also saves your company money on wasted fuel heading to and from the gas station as well.

In addition, when your bookkeeper or accountant knows how much fuel will cost each month, they can dedicate the time they would have spent reviewing gas station receipts to managing other financial parts of your company.

These are just some of the benefits your business can get when you choose wholesale fuel over retail.
