Membership Information

The Oregon Fuels Association (OFA) is the statewide association of fuel distributors, retailers, commercial fueling and heating oil marketers. It brings together business people who have similar goals and concerns and gives them the advantages of a unified coalition of fuel professionals. Operating their businesses in a world of increased government regulation, more complex technologies and intense competition, fuel marketers and gasoline dealers need the strength of collaboration that OFA provides. With over 140 marketer, fuel dealers and associate members, OFA is the state’s leading resource for industry-related education and support. The influence of its established political organization and lobbying network gives OFA members a powerful advocate for the protection and growth of their businesses and their industry.

Our History

The Oregon Fuels Association was founded as a loose state confederation in the early 1950’s by a group of private brand marketers.   In 1958 branded marketers joined the organization and it became the Oregon Oil Jobbers Association. In 1985 it evolved into the Oregon Petroleum Marketers Association (OPMA). In the early 1990’s the Oil Heat Institute (OHI) merged with the OPMA and in 2004, the Oregon Gasoline Dealers Association consolidated with the OPMA, creating the Oregon Fuels Association. Today OFA has over 140 fuel marketer, dealer and associate members. OFA members account for more than 65% of all petroleum products sold in Oregon.
