Modern Oasis, RaceTrac, Gas Station and more

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Like a lighthouse on the ocean shore, gas stations light up the side of the highways.

It the US, these are not only source of fuel, but you can eat in a restaurant, buy spare tire, scuba diving gear, any electronic device you imagine. Junk food, pop and coffee are a given. You can take shower, shave! There is really seems to be no limit.

I have seen truck drivers buying tons of Christmas gifts for their kids! Makes sense!!!

Most American gas stations on major highways are equiped like a super store. RaceTrac is just an example.

Good beer, you may not have luck here. American piss water is the term best applied.


Lottery tickets, lot of choice, but if you still buying, then you are not rich yet!!!!

You know Tom,...it's amazing how something that's not exactly pretty such as a modern gas station or fast food can make some pretty cool pictures at night, this one is probably already linked to Recatrack since it's a pretty good picture. L-82 Michael :)

Not linked yet, I just checked.

I just stopped here, as I needed gas, but then took out my tripod and shot this station from several corners. This one turned out best.

The spillage is just water, as they were cleaning the floor.


We have up north only few such a full service stations.
