Total merchandise sales for April 2002 were $594.8 million, an increase of 3.6 percent over the April 2001 total of $574.2 million.
Gasoline sales for April dipped to $240.7 million from $246.1 million in the same period last year. Overall sales revenue decreased 2.2 percent, primarily due to a 13-cent per gallon decline in the average retail price of gasoline from April 2001. The average retail price per gallon for April 2002 was $1.46, compared to $1.59 in April 2001.
Although sales were lower, the average gallons of gasoline sold per store increased 4.3 percent in April 2002 compared to April 2001.
