COVID-19 is impacting our members and communities across the state. On March 16, 2020, Governor Wolf strongly urged non-essential businesses statewide to shut down and residents avoid all nonessential travel over the entire state until March 31 in an attempt to slow the spread of the COVID-19. The following press release provides more details on what industries and services are defined as essential or non-essential. The PPA will continue to work with our government partners to express the importance of responsible operations for gas stations, distribution, transportation, and home repairs.
Our association will be taking every step possible to ensure our membership is receiving the information and guidance they need to navigate through this evolving situation. For additional information, please visit our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources on the PPA website. If you need anything or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
The PPA Heating Fuels Committee exists to represent the large percentage of PPA members who market deliverable heating fuels. The committee will identify current issues important to the health and long term viability of the industry. This will include establishing the association’s strategy on current and future heating oil product specifications. The committee will set an agenda focused on proposals by the federal, state government, and other entities that impact PPA members who engage in the business of selling heating fuels. Upon study and discussion of those issues, the committee may recommend to the PPA Board of Directors positions and courses of action that will effectively deal with proposed policies.
