Rising fuel prices and market volatility may motivate today’s consumers to consider price-protected contracts. This environment creates an opportunity for fuel dealers with the right set of tools to gain market share. Price-protected contracts on their own or combined with budget programs give fuel dealers the opportunity to offer peace of mind to today’s anxious consumers.
