Clarifies that the minimum distance of one and one-half miles between a refiner-operated service station and one operated by a franchised dealer is measured from the gas pump on the refiner’s facility that is nearest a gas pump at the dealer’s facility. The bill also changes the threshold for defining a “newly remodeled facility” to one that has a minimum cost of $560,000 until January 1, 2004, and thereafter a minimum cost of $560,000 plus an amount reflecting the annual rate of inflation based on changes in the Consumer Price Index.
