Essential Business Statement

During natural disasters, PEI distributors and contractors typically are recognized as "essential businesses" because of their role in bringing gas stations, convenience stores and commercial fueling facilities back online. PEI members are just as important during the COVID-19 crisis. Reliable fueling systems keep emergency vehicles on the road, critical supply chains functioning and families fed.

If your state, local, tribal or territorial government is restricting normal commercial activities to slow the spread of the virus, you may need to provide evidence that you are an essential business.
