Dear PEI Member:
Charlie Burns, president of Oscar W. Larson Co., Clarkston, Michigan, became the 69th president of the Petroleum Equipment Institute on Jan. 1. He succeeds Robert Peavey, president of PumpTex Inc., Beaumont, Texas. Bill Mascott, president of Mascott Equipment Co., Portland, Oregon, is PEI’s 2019 vice president.
Burns’ first action was the appointment of 224 individuals to serve on 25 PEI committees in 2019. As has been true in recent years, the number of qualified PEI members who applied for committee positions this year exceeded the number of open committee positions. PEI greatly appreciates all who offered their time and talent to serve the association.
If you are interested in serving on a PEI committee in 2020, email your committee preferences and a brief summary of your qualifications to PEI Executive Vice President Rick Long at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can find a complete list of the 2019 committees and committee members here.

One financial analyst thinks Amazon could also disrupt gasoline sales. Following reports that Amazon might open 3,000 of its cashierless Amazon Go stores and expand the number of Whole Foods Markets, a D.A. Davidson research report suggested the next logical step is for Amazon to enter retail fueling.
Davidson cited several potential benefits from such a move. Thousands of gasoline stations would provide Amazon with a major new revenue stream. The new locations would allow Amazon to enhance and expand its rapidly growing Amazon Prime delivery services. Perhaps most important, Amazon would gain massive and constantly updated data on its customers’ shopping preferences.
