Advocating small and independent business owners just like you

The Long Island Gasoline Retailers Association is a non-profit trade association located in New York State. We've worked across the state and locally for 83 years to aggressively defend the small-scale, independent business owners who comprise our membership.

Because there are so many challenges operating a business we're fully committed to helping owners ease those challenges by lowering overhead costs through our Worker Safety Group, legal plan and sponsored educational seminars. We even offer health insurance plans specially chosen according to their usefulness to small business owners. LIGRA's experienced health insurance broker, as well as the assistance of a health insurance advocate, is provided free of charge to any LIGRA member who gets their health insurance through the association.

The savings in overhead costs more than justify the dues each member pays. We're sure you'll be pleased with our services.


We have health insurance plans available for LIGRA members and we’re confident that you'll find the plan you need at a relatively reasonable rate.

Tembelis, Giambrone to Chair Trade Show, Membership Committees


The Long Island Gasoline Retailers Association, which has represented small business owners in the automotive services industry since 1931, has selected industry veteran Tariq Khan as its new President, replacing Kevin Beyer. Beyer had been president since 2010 but stepped down due to various business commitments.


Khan has owned a variety of gas stations and convenience stores since the mid-1980s and served as president of the United Franchise Owners of Long Island as well as a national association of 7-Eleven franchise operators. He joined the LIGRA Board in 2012. Khan said, “Kevin set the bar high for future LIGRA presidents. I look forward to working with the LIGRA board members to make the transition as seamless as possible.
