Mercer Capital’s Convenience Store Industry newsletter is a quarterly publication. Each issue includes a segment focus (motor fuels, grocery stores, alternative fuels and consumer transportation and food services). Also included in every issue is a market overview, a review of recent M&A activity, and more.
The segment focus of the most recent issue is Alternative Fuels and Consumer Transportation.

The following chart details the projected increase in fuel efficiency of LDV’s through 2040.
