There is disquiet among some Texaco gas station operators over the way they are being treated by GB Energy, the local operator of the Texaco brand.
The Jamaica Gasolene Retailers Association (JGRA) says despite advocating for a resolution, the company has been unresponsive.
The lease agreements for three local station owners are set to come to an end next Tuesday, December 31.
JGRA president Derrick Thompson, says it is unfortunate that Texaco would decide to sell the stations without giving the dealers the first right of refusal.
He says the dealers have been in business with Texaco for years and it was expected that they would have been given due consideration.
The JGRA president says given the short notice to vacate, the dealers should be compensated.
He says the association will continue to seek dialogue with GB Energy to get an amicable resolution.
However, Thompson points out that the association has not ruled out taking action if there is no positive feedback.
Our news centre contacted GB Energy this morning for a response but the company declined to comment.
