- OPIS Standard Display - Provides one price per product, per supplier in each market, even when suppliers post at multiple terminals. We select the primary terminal for each supplier, so the OPIS averages that are so critical for benchmarking and market analysis are not skewed.
- OPIS Terminal Display - Shows product prices posted for every supplier at all terminals in a given location for total price transparency and includes the location and owner.
OPIS Traditional Display - Shows 1 unleaded, 1 midgrade and 1 premium set of prices, averages and benchmarks. In markets with multiple octanes, prices may be averaged together.
OPIS Octane Detail Display - Shows prices, averages and benchmarks for all unique octanes in a particular grade (unleaded, midgrade, premium). Available in both OPIS Standard Display and OPIS Terminal Display as of 8/1/14.
- Gross - Straight wholesale posted rack price.
Net - Wholesale posted rack price with prompt payment
discounts included. For instance, if a supplier's discount terms
are 1-10 (one percent discount for payment within 10 days) and the
gross price is 91.00, the net price would be 90.09 (91.00 times .01
= a discount of .91. Original price of 91.00 less discount of .91 =
Net price of 90.09).
