"With credit card fees, 12 cents per gallon, I am losing 20 cents per gallon," said James Patneau, an independent dealer who owns filling stations in Medina and Cleveland and is chairman of the Ohio Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association.

James Patneau Jr., chair of the board of directors for the Ohio Petroleum Marketers & Convenience Store Association, said he believes HB 272 would do the opposite, moving responsible owners out of the business.
Patneau said he does not believe business owners will support the fee increase, adding that many permit holders would be unable to continue business if their permits were increased by more than $2,000.
Patneau said that when a business shuts its doors in Ohio, owners are able to put permits in safekeeping and the permit remains valid for an allotted amount of time.
Patneau said he believes most store owners would not have an objection to HB 273.

"We're easy targets," said James Patneau Jr., a board member of the Ohio Petroleum Marketers & Convenience Store Association."We're an all-cash businesses.We have entry-level employees at the locations who are not as well trained to deal with these quick change [schemes]."
While banks and money service businesses often have security cameras, check verification systems and armed guards, many convenience stores and gas stations require just one form of identification, maybe a fingerprint, to cash a check.
That makes evidence gathering and prosecution difficult, further heightening their vulnerability."There is no record of [crooks] ever having been there, except for the checks themselves," Stokes said.
Patneau of the OPMCA, who owns nine convenience stores and gas stations in Northeast Ohio, said he stopped accepting checks when too many bounced.
But for others, like Semaan's store, check cashing is a money-maker and an integral part of a business.
"We can't stop what we're doing.We got to keep doing it, but carefully," he said.Check-cashing "brings people to the store."

"Everyone, including government officials, thinks we are big oil and can absorb all of these taxes and fees," said James Patneau Jr., a fuel dealer and station owner from Medina and chairman of OPMCA. "The truth is that more than 80% of OPMCA members are independent, family-operated small businesses who are struggling to keep the doors open with razor-thin margins on gas pump sales."
It is because of those thin margins that most major refiners like Shell, Exxon Mobil and Valero do not own any stations in Ohio; and BP and Sunoco are selling their few remaining stations in the state, he added.
James Patneau, Jr., a fuel ..., 6 July 2009 [cached]
James Patneau, Jr., a fuel dealer and station owner from Medina, OH, and chairman of the Ohio Petroleum Marketers & Convenience Store Association cites other reason.
Fuel dealers and station operators in have been burdened with an increasingly difficult regulatory environment, astronomical credit card fees and higher taxes, he said. Compounding the problem is that selling fuel requires established, strong credit lines. The current economic situation and industry challenges have left many dealers without the necessary cash flow and credit to pay for fuel loads when they need them. So they have to temporarily stop selling fuel until they can get the funds to pay for fuel supply, Patneau said.
