Fuel Loss

Methodology: Exploratory data analysis, non-parametric regression
Client affiliation: United Oil

In this project we investigate transportation fuel loss among retailers and what environmental elements or business practices might influence such fuel loss. The transportation fuels industry has monitored the disappearance of a small percentage of fuel throughout retailers in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego since 2001, and we will investigate potential causes of this loss to help mitigate future losses.
