Washington, D.C. - The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), the nation's largest commercial construction trade association, today announced a new agreement with BP that will offer its members significant savings on fuel purchases. The tiered rebate program offers AGC members a rebate of up to six cents per gallon for fuel purchased at BP locations nationwide.

"In today's volatile marketplace, this discount offers a great value to our members," said AGC's chief executive officer, Stephen E. Sandherr. "A fleet operator with 20 vehicles might purchase more than 30,000 gallons of fuel per year. At six cents a gallon, that's a savings of more than $1,800 annually."

Tiered rebates begin at just one and a half cents/gallon for up to 499 gallons and six cents/gallon for 10,000+ gallons on fuel purchased at any of the more than 11,000 BP service stations nationwide. In addition, AGC members will save one and a half cents/gallon on fuel purchased at any gas station when using the BP Business Solutions MasterCard.

AGC has long provided discounts to AGC members through recognized vendors as part of its members-only Affinity Program. There are currently 12 AGC partners that offer discounts to members ranging from vehicle rentals, package delivery, mobile office products and fuel and fleet management.

The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) is the largest and oldest national construction trade association in the United States. AGC represents more than 33,000 firms, including 7,500 of America's leading general contractors, and over 12,500 specialty-contracting firms.
