The article informs that the retailers and representatives from the National Association of Convenience stores alike celebrated the outcomes of the November 2 elections. The general consensus being that U.S. President George W. Bush's and the U.S. Senate's support of the convenience store industry should remain consistent and will likely grow stronger, which operates 138 locations under the Scotchman Stores, Young's Food Stores, Your Convenience and Carolina Petro brands. Jay Ricker, president and CEO of Ricker Oil Inc., a 28-store chain in Anderson, Indiana-based Calfee Co. and the vice chairman of government relations for NACS, agreed that the industry certainly has a lot more friends in the Senate than in previous years, but that in itself does not quell industry problems.
