CountryMark retail fuel station opens in Bloomington
Monroe County, Indiana, has its first CountryMark-branded retail fuel station. The site opened on March 2 at 1305 Bloomfield Road in Bloomington. The station features a convenience store and a fuel island that offers 24/7 access to CountryMark premium gasoline and diesel fuel. Specific fuel products offered at this site include Premium Diesel-R, CountryMark’s premium on-road diesel fuel; as well as CountryMark 87-octane PLUS TOP TIER gasoline and CountryMark 93-octane PLUS TOP TIER gasoline.
The CountryMark fuel at this new retail site is being supplied by White River Co-op, which is a farmer-owned cooperative with headquarters in Loogootee, Indiana.
“This CountryMark fuel station is in a great location,” said Mike Riggins, White River Co-op petroleum department manager. “It’s right on Bloomfield Road, which is a popular thoroughfare through Bloomington. We’ve got a lot of space at this fuel station, which makes it easy for customers to pull in, fill up and get back to living their lives. I think customers will also be impressed with how clean this site is. It’s just a great place to get fuel you can count on and just about anything you could want from the on-site convenience store.”
CountryMark is also a farmer-owned cooperative. With headquarters in Indianapolis, CountryMark, is in the oil exploration, production, refining and marketing business. CountryMark supplies fuels and lubricants to member cooperatives throughout the Midwest, which then supply energy products to 100-plus CountryMark branded retail fuel stations and 200-plus delivery routes.
“As a farmer-owned oil company, we approach fuel quality in a different way,” said CountryMark retail manager Gary Barrett. “We produce the quality of fuels that our farmer owners want to use in their own vehicles. Our premium diesel fuels are the only fuels in our marketplace that are consistently a 50-cetane product, which provides all of our diesel customers with more power, performance and reliability than they can get from comparable diesel products.”
Barrett went on to note that CountryMark PLUS gasoline has earned TOP TIER certification.
“Only 30 gasoline retailers in the nation have achieved this quality level,” said Barrett. “Seven of the biggest automobile manufacturers in the world recommend TOP TIER gasoline because of what this level of fuel quality does for gasoline engine performance and engine life. That’s the quality of fuel our customers expect from CountryMark, and that is the quality of fuel we provide.”
