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 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.
