Re: Arco- Marathon?

I don't really understand why Marathon is returning Arco to other parts of the US. They have branded a few in FL too.

Are they operating these as discount type stations? From what I saw in MN where they have a few also, those Arcos, did not have a particularly competitive gas price (they were just average price), they also had same price cash or credit, and nothing anywhere about a debit card fee.

I guess I don't understand the point to them supporting branding for Arco in those territories instead of Marathon.

I would say Arco's imaging is much better looking than Marathon's imaging. So there is that. But we can thank BP for that, because Marathon totally lifted Arco's branding from what BP had designed.
