What is NDPMA?

The North Dakota Petroleum Dealers and Jobbers were organized in the mid 1950’s by a group of petroleum marketers who realized there is strength in one collective voice.  This small but enthusiastic group grew in size and influence.  In 1989, this group of pioneers was reorganized and became known as the North Dakota Petroleum Marketers Association.

Today, NDPMA represents over 400 petroleum marketers and associate members.  This list includes bulk oil jobbers, service station dealers, convenience stores and truck stops.  The associate members play a vital role in providing marketers with the tools and resources needed to succeed in this ever changing industry.  A majority of NDPMA members are small business owners working to boost the state’s economy by providing over 10,000 jobs for area residents.


Legislation & Representation

The primary purpose of any trade association is lobbying on behalf of its members.  The association provides a unified voice – strengthened by its number of members.  NDPMA is your “watchdog” in North Dakota and Washington, D.C., protecting you against legislation that could cost you thousands of dollars in lost revenue.  We keep our members informed of legislative issues and, with their input, represent and promote the best interests of the industry.
