Resource Management Inc. (http://www.usedtanksupply.com), a prominent U.S. retailer of discount storage tanks and reconditioned bulk fuel storage tanks, reports that over the last year they have seen a marked increase in sales and enquires from businesses shopping for used fuel storage tanks for their companies. “The fact that we are selling more used fuel tanks is not unusual, what is different is that we are selling more tanks to companies that you wouldn’t normally think of as needing bulk fuel storage,” states Bill Strack, Company President of Resource Management Inc. “Many small business owners are very concerned about the future price of fuel and how it will affect their business so they are buying used fuel storage tanks in order to stockpile large qualities of fuel at current rates, as a hedge against future fuel price increases and to keep their expenses down. Many have told me that they are worried about tensions in the Middle East and what would happen to their business if there was a global crisis and fuel was unavailable,” says Strack.
Small businesses concerns about the price of fuel are justified. The national average price for a gallon of regular grade gas is $3.84, with many places paying more than $4.00 per gallon. The record high price of $4.11 was reached in July of 2008. From transportation to manufacturing, any increase in the price of fuel increases the cost of doing business. Global fuel prices are driven by supply and demand. They are also highly affected by instability and fear. According to the Energy Information Administration, 76% of the price we pay for gas is set by world crude prices, with 12% federal and states taxes, 6% refining costs and 6% distribution and marketing costs. With little warning, tomorrow’s fuel prices can be significantly more than today’s, due to any number of factors that we have no control over including political tensions, supply issues and panic.
“Buying a bulk storage fuel tank in order to have a supply of fuel on hand is one way that a company can have some control over availability and price. Today, it is no longer just survivalists and preppers who have the foresight to stock pile fuel for their own use. For many small businesses, purchasing a bulk storage tank to store fuel just makes sense. Buying fuel at current market prices keeps it more affordable in the long run. In the event of a national or international fuel shortage due to a supply issues, conflict in the Middle East, economic collapse or even natural disaster, having your own supply of fuel allows you to continue with business as usual. Companies buying bulk storage tanks to store fuel is a trend that I predict will keep growing, as long as the cost of fuel keeps rising,” claims Strack.
