    With these mergers we see less and less competition. Rather than allowing more expansion, I would rather see Pilot being broken up into smaller companies. Spinning off Flying J would be a good start.

    Just saying, it looks to be a merger on the supply side, unless Thomas has retail outlets that I haven't been able to find. They (PFJ)have an interest in a few Thornton's outlets, but not all of them, and they used to have interests in Holiday up in Minnesota but those outlets no longer seem to be involved with Pilot.

    It appears to be a way to help both entities make better utilization of the transportation of petroleum products.

    It has also been approved by the regulatory agencies involved. The PFJ merger involved selling off some locations to satisfy the anti-trust concerns.


    Just pointing out what I see, any independent businessman can choose to buy or not buy fuel from any entity for any reason.


    Those of us with fuel cards or fueling solutions have to do what it takes, or hope to be lucky enough to be reimbursed, so far, I have been lucky, and have learned to avoid trouble and wasting time.

    Thomas stations are supepr clean. Pilot will Screw that up in a hurry. They have something to do with Fuelman automatic fueling sites.
