Rubis operates about 50 outlets across Jamaica,serving retail, commercial and industrial customers alike. It too is an international company and this is its only listing in this top ten. Read the words of this reviewer: Should you encounter a punctured tyre and need a quick patch, this gas station located off Marcus Garvey Drive is quite convenient and offers such service.
