Chevron to Restructure U.S. Gasoline Marketing Business: The San Francisco-based energy firm said the move will eliminate 130 jobs, or 5% of its non-service-station work force. Regional offices will be combined and support staffs will be consolidated in an effort to concentrate on sales growth in a competitive business, Chevron Corp. said. About 1,900 employees will remain in the non-service-station work force. About 4,200 employees work in company-operated service stations. Chevron said it has 8,000 service stations in 25 states in the Southeast, Sun Belt and West. The restructuring is expected to be completed by next summer and will create a new retail marketing organization, the company said.
