Popular retail gas station scheduled to open in April

Bookmark and Share

Ground was broke in the early part of January and come mid April Guthrie will have a new gas station with a prime location.

Murphy USAGuthrie News Page confirmed Wednesday morning with the offices of Murphy USA that they are indeed coming to the Guthrie area.

Murphy USA is constructing the fuel station near the Wal Mart parking lot.

Murphy USA is a gas station and convenience store business that focuses on low-cost, high-volume retailing. Appropriately, the company has stations in the parking lots of Wal-Mart stores.

As of June 30, 2013, the company, who has been in operation since 1996, operates 1,179 stores in 23 states throughout the country.

Similar to Wal-Mart, the company is a cash-generating machine. Murphy USA buys unbranded gasoline so that it can sell at lower costs than its competitors. Gas stations aren’t the greatest businesses themselves — they are typically low-margin and competition is fierce — but the convenience stores are a different ball game. Murphy USA enjoys healthy margins in its sodas and foods.
