TRAVEL PORTS EARNINGS UP FOR THE YEAR

 ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel Ports of America, Inc. (NASDAQ: TPOA) reported a profit of $782,592, or fifteen cents a share, for its year ended April 30, 1993. The company earned $553,918 or eleven cents per share for the year ended April 30, 1992.
 For the year net income increased $228,674 or 41.2 percent. Sales on a same unit basis increased 1.5 percent for the year but the sale of a facility in Pennsylvania during the year offset the same unit sales gain. Operating expenses decreased from the prior year as result of cost control programs, from the sale of the Pennsylvania facility and lower interest costs.
 John Holahan, president of Travel Ports, said, "The last six months of our fiscal year were stronger in diesel sales due to increased sales efforts and to enforcement activities aimed at illegal diesel fuel sales. We expect this trend to continue into our new fiscal year.
 Travel Ports, headquartered in Rochester, operates 16 truck and motor plazas in six states (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina and Indiana).
