Securing loans for gas stations can be much more difficult to complete than other types of small business loans. There are challenges specific to the nature of this business that you will have to overcome.
Your choice of lenders will be more limited than with other types of businesses. Those potential lenders who serve this type of borrower will be concerned with environmental issues that may impact the business. The very nature of this business has perceived environmental risks that are not present in many other types of commercial endeavors. Also, this type of property is usually limited to a single use, a gas station, and this impacts its perceived value when it comes to recouping funds if the business fails.

Demand for Gasoline Consumer demand has been the driving force behind the steady growth in gasoline consumption throughout the 1990s. Consumer expenditure on gasoline has increased to $126.5 billion from 1996 to 1998.
The top five brands of gasoline companies controlled 48,000 gas stations outlets, which represented just 48% of the total. Chevron controlled 35% of California gasoline market in 1998, and the two next largest suppliers controlled another 47%.
Independent station owners must buy gasoline at the best possible price in a local market. United states gasoline stations are among the most productive in the world. Retailers in U.S. typically employ fewer people and sell a greater number of gallons of gasoline compared to retailers in Japan.
Gasoline usage has important environmental implications and thus the sale of gasoline is heavily regulated. In 1988, EPA issued regulations setting minimum standards for new tanks and requiring owners of existing tank to upgrade, replace or close them by December 22, 1998. Meeting the UST deadline is very costly for gasoline stations; at $130,000 to $155,000 per tank for clean up. Where there is ground water contamination, the cost can escalate up to $750,000.
Environmental, health and social costs present the largest portion of the externalized price Americans pay for their gasoline reliance. These expenses total some of one billion dollar every year.
