Alaska is not on the list of states that Chevron will market and distribute its aviation fuel (100 Octane Low Lead)? Is this the beginning of a shift away from providing 100LL fuel for Alaska? We intend to find this out and post it here.
Here is a press release from Chevron issued this week.
CHEVRON RESTRUCTURES GENERAL AVIATION DIVISION
Effective June 1, 2010, Chevron's General Aviation business will only market Chevron- and Texaco-branded aviation fuels in the following states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington. The planned market withdrawal will be completed by November 15, 2010.
Chevron will continue to be a manufacturer of jet fuel and aviation gasoline but is changing its branded distribution channel to reduce costs while continuing to serve the aviation industry. Chevron will utilize its major distributor, Hiller/Air Petro, to sell aviation fuel to the general aviation market. The move is part of its downstream restructuring efforts to adapt to changing market conditions and to successfully compete in the marketplace. Learn more at www.ChevronGlobalAviation.com.
