About the Coalition

The Small Retailers Coalition is a national trade association with over 200 members from across the U.S., representing the interests of thousands of small, independent petroleum retailers and convenience stores. Small retailers make up over half of the retail fuel business in the U.S. today and this coalition is dedicated to combating an issue that threatens the future viability of our businesses – the uneven playing field created by the Renewable Fuel Standard.
