ARCO, which stands for Atlantic Richfield Company, is a brand of gas stations primarily located in the western United States. ARCO is known for its no-frills, low-cost approach to providing fuel to consumers. The brand is owned by BP America, Inc., which acquired ARCO in 2000.
Key features of ARCO gas stations include competitive fuel prices, which are often lower compared to other major fuel retailers. ARCO achieves cost savings by accepting debit cards and cash payments only, eliminating the processing fees associated with credit card transactions. While this allows for lower fuel prices, it means that credit cards are not accepted at ARCO stations.
ARCO stations typically offer standard gasoline, diesel fuel, and in some locations, E85 ethanol blends. The focus on cost efficiency and simplicity is reflected in the station design and amenities, emphasizing a straightforward and quick fueling experience for customers.
In addition to its fuel offerings, ARCO has convenience stores at many locations, providing customers with snacks, beverages, and basic necessities. These convenience stores often operate independently of the fueling payment system and accept a variety of payment methods, including credit cards.
ARCO has a significant presence in states such as California, Oregon, Washington, and others in the western U.S. The brand's commitment to providing affordable fuel options has made it a popular choice for budget-conscious consumers seeking cost-effective gasoline without additional amenities or loyalty programs commonly associated with other fuel retailers.
