The following is an article that was published on EthanolRetailer.com :

Brabham Oil Co., Inc recently renewed its membership within Growth Energy Market Development. They are a 3rd generation fuel marketer that began business in 1929. Brabham Oil was founded by the late Clarence Brabham and taken over by the late Robert McCully in the 1960’s. In 1962, the business was incorporated, with Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Brabham as President and Vice-President.

In 1970, Brabham retired and McCully assumed managing control of the company. In the 1980's, the business added British Petroleum, Shell, and Chevron as primary wholesale suppliers. In the late 1980's, the company added McCully's sons, Robert McCully, Jr. and Clarence B. (Brab) McCully to the management team. Under this family management through the 1990's, the company grew the E-Z Shop chain of convenience stores to be one of the largest and most recognized chains in S.C.

At the turn of the century, the company realized a need for a private label gasoline brand to compete in the marketplace and to meet a growing value oriented customer base. The Horizon brand was developed to meet this need, and has grown to serving over 30 locations across South Carolina today. Brabham Oil Company, Inc. owns all rights to the Horizon brand developing it for use at its own EZ Shop locations, as well as customer locations it supplies.

Brabham Oil Company, Inc. is currently managed by Clarence B. (Brab) McCully and has grown into a 28 store chain and wholesale marketer predominantly operating in the lower half of South Carolina.

“It only makes sense to create jobs here by selling greener alternative fuels grown here instead of imported from other countries,” noted Brab McCully. “We pride ourselves in bringing into South Carolina fuels made in America and providing an alternative to the consumer. We sell E10 at all of our facilities. We were the first to introduce E85 in the lower part of our state and are proudly the leading marketer of this product in our market. We feel the pressure from Big Oil attempting to thwart our efforts to promote E85 and ethanol in general. It is refreshing to be marketing renewable fuels and helping South Carolina and the U.S.A. become more energy independent.”

The company’s primary interest in joining Growth Energy Market Development was to have a unified voice in the industry. McCully went on, “Any alternatives to Big Oil’s existing slate of petroleum products must not be controlled by them. They have no interest in promoting E85 and only sell ethanol because they have to, in order to complete with it. We rail in our own ethanol and blend it outside the gasoline terminals to provide the most competitive price to the end consumer. South Carolina has proudly passed a law stating the gasoline terminals can't pre-blend ethanol without also offering an unblended product. This prevents Big Oil from being able to dictate where they get the ethanol from and what they charge the consumer for it. This law has vastly increased competition and thereby benefited the motorists in our state. I am in favor of stepping up efforts to increase consumer's awareness of the benefits of using E85 instead of traditional fuels. I am not in favor of reducing the excise tax incentive for ethanol as without it we could not have grown to where we are today.”

He added, “We have to be able to compete and as you know it is not Big Oil growing E85 pumps and other alternative fuels. Independent distributors around the country such as ourselves are the reason for its growth. Help the ones that want to sell it and don't force it on the ones that don't.”
