For more than a century, the South Carolina Petroleum Marketers Association (SCPMA) was dedicated to working on behalf of petroleum marketers and their consumers to educate and lead our state forward. We advocate for our members in South Carolina and Washington, D.C., as well as the media, informing legislators and the public with the facts about South Carolina’s petroleum industry. The merger with the South Carolina Association of Convenience Stores just this past year has added resources and additional influence that will make it easier for our new association, the South Carolina Convenience and Petroleum Marketers Association (SCCPMA) to create positive outcomes for these critical industries and for South Carolina citizens alike.
Our members now consist of marketer members (jobbers and convenience store owners), supplier members (companies that provide products/services to marketers), and major oil supplier members (gasoline and fuel oil refiners and importers, pipeline companies and independent terminal companies).
SCCPMA serves its members through lobbying, regulatory notices and member publications. The organization serves as the united voice for the petroleum marketing and convenience store industries.
We also serve as the qualified state association for the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA), a congressionally authorized program aimed at promoting oilheat, renewable home heating fuels and energy efficiency educating consumers and the industry, and developing meaningful research and development projects for fuels and heating equipment.
Like many industries, home heating has undergone many changes over the years. But one thing about SCCPMA remains constant—a commitment to being a strong advocate for our constituents—and its many consumers in South Carolina.
