Sunday that it will begin providing fuel services to Costco members at its branch in Zhongli, Taoyuan starting March 2.

Costco Taiwan Vice President Wang Yu-mei (王友玫) said the Zhongli gas station will be self-service, but Costco employees will be on hand if customers need assistance.

Costco will buy its gasoline and diesel from state-owned CPC Corp. (中油), Wang disclosed, and said the company will likely adopt a floating price mechanism similar to CPC and Formosa Petrochemical Corp. (台塑石化), a privately owned fuel supplier.

Asked to comment on rumors that the retail giant plans to sell fuel at NT$3 per liter cheaper than its competitors, the Costco executive responded that it aims to provide the best fuel prices in Taiwan.    [FULL  STORY]
