Costco and Kroger are consumers’ top choices to fill up their gas tank, according to a new consumer study by Market Force Information, which polled more than 4,500 people in April. Neither retailer has a store in Oklahoma but it’s interesting to note how warehouse retailers and grocers are overtaking traditional convenience store chains as the most popular gasoline stations. Convenience (48%) and price (46%) were the top drivers, followed by cleanliness, ease of entry onto the property, brand reputation, fuel quality and customer service.
The survey found these were the top gasoline retailers:
3. Sam’s Club
Other top choices include Shell, chosen for the quality and environmental friendliness of its fuel, and 7-Eleven, which earned mention for its amenities and merchandise selection.
