CHICAGO, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- New CITGO Marketer GasMart USA recently completed the conversion of 15 locally owned gas stations across Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana to the CITGO brand. The Centennial image and fresh service options are now available for fuel and convenience store customers with Grand Openings taking place June 2 through June 6.

"We are extremely excited about this new partnership with CITGO," said Kevin Lott, vice president of operations at GasMart USA. "We already own or service more than 105 stations across the Midwest and are proud to expand our network with the CITGO brand.
