How is Gasoline Delivered?

When Howard Energy delivers gasoline to an unbranded retailer, no matter if they are in Baltimore, Northern Virginia, or in the D.C. area, it has gone through a long process of getting there. The gasoline starts by either being imported from overseas or brought in from a domestic crude oil pump and then taken to a refinery. At the refinery, the oil is heated, distilled and undergoes a separation process where it is divided into different, smaller quantities.

After the refinery, it is taken and goes to either an oil tanker or barge, or to a bulk terminal storage facility. When the gasoline is requested to be delivered, Howard Energy places it in a tanker truck. Once the tanker truck is filled with gasoline, it then drives to your location and delivers the fuel to a storage tank, gas station, or other facility.
