ExxonMobil and Shell Answer Questions About Hot Fuels

The oil industry has known for 100 years that gasoline expands with temperature. As it warms, gasoline expands by volume but not by weight or energy content. Since the 1920’s, the oil industry has taken temperature into account for wholesale transactions, and uses a 60 degree Fahrenheit standard when measuring gasoline at wholesale. However, retail sales are not temperature adjusted. As a result, consumers pay a Hot Fuel Premium when gasoline temperatures exceed 60 degrees, as they do throughout the country during the summer.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
