About CWPMA

The Colorado Wyoming Petroleum Marketers Association (CWPMA) has been the united voice of petroleum marketers since 1934. The Association represents the independent petroleum marketers in the wholesale and retail business of gasoline, special fuels and lubricants. Petroleum marketers are made up of locally owned, generational businesses that through branding agreements and supply contracts are partners with gasoline refineries and producers. In Colorado, our members sell 90  percent of all gasoline and special fuel sold at wholesale and retail through their own fuel outlets or dealers. In Wyoming, our Members sell eighty percent of all gasoline and special fuel at wholesale and retail. Total retail outlets are over 1900. Our Associate Members are companies or individuals whose services or supplies are sold to fuels marketers and convenience stores.  The fuels market is in transition and Colorado/Wyoming marketers are leading the way from CNG/LNG and even on Cost effective E.V. Charging ports. The fuels marketers are updating stations with new technologies, making stations safer and more electronically secure and are committed to being good community members through supporting the nation's two best environmental Underground storage tank programs.  Working in Concert and partnership with regulatory officials, even when you disagree, is better for our state  our communities and our businesses long term. Our number one priority as an association is to represent its members both legislatively and regulatory so the marketer's voices are heard. CWPMA continually works to promote the fair enactment of state and federal legislation and regulations relating to its members.
