Gulf Brand Returns to Alabama
JACKSON, Ala. — The Gulf brand has returned to Alabama for the first time in more than two decades.
Gulf Oil LP announced that it reached an agreement with petroleum products distributor Bumpers Oil Co. LLC, which converted two gas stations in Jackson and one in Grove Hill to the Gulf brand. Plans are in place to raise the Gulf flag at as many as six additional sites in the Yellowhammer State in the months ahead.
“Bumpers Oil is a terrific partner for us as we continue our national expansion and move back into areas of Alabama that haven’t seen the Gulf brand in over 20 years,” said Gulf Oil's Senior Vice President and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Rick Dery. “We are very pleased to be providing their customers with quality products and services at competitive rates.”
Chris Bumpers, owner of Jackson-based Bumpers Oil, noted that he selected Gulf because of its trusted history and excellent reputation.
"Our customers love to see the iconic orange and blue logo flying high in Alabama once again, and they feel great about filling their tanks with Gulf gas," he said. "We know our partnership will achieve great things for both of our companies.”
Gulf Oil LP is a national branded supplier of motor fuels throughout the United States and its territories.
