America's Gas Stations

The gas station is a dying art, one that helped shape the course of American travel over the course of the XXth century. Some old gas stations have ended up on the National Register of Historic Places, but most of those solely act as landmarks and aren’t operational. Many been repurposed as restaurants or museums or even still offer their original services so visitors have an opportunity to interact with former roadside staples.
