We had a LOT of fun at NACS this week. In addition to having a huge booth, complete with a near-perfect replica of a working petro pump (on the right) that showcased VeriFone’s VNET media front and center, we are also following it up with an excellent infographic on VeriFone’s global presence in the petroleum industry along with some key industry stats.
To put this together, we combed through a lot of data and selected the best for the infographic. But, we figured, “Why waste all that hard work,” so we decided to post some of the other interesting points here on the blog.
Once you’re done checking out the “extra” data, be sure and click on the link to the full infographic at the bottom of the post.

Running and managing a profitable fuel station with a convenience store is still possible. The infographic may give you some ideas.
