Abandonment – II

Abandoned Gas Station

Monday, after work I took Logan to his voice lessons. The studio is in an old strip shopping center and I like to walk around rather than sit in the waiting space. Last week I featured a recently abandoned Shell Station at the center. Well guess what, there is another abandoned Gas Station a couple hundred yards south of the Shell Station. I think it has been boarded up ten years or so. I forget what chain had the site.

They left their old sign up and I always get a chuckle out of it.

Since the station went out of business the prices listed have sometimes seemed like a huge bargain or a big ripoff. Right now they are just a moderately good deal.

    Oil by the barrel seems to be dropping to ‘high’ lows these days. I kinda expect that now that we have an upcoming election.

    It’s interesting to see so many stations closing in your area. Wonder why?!!

    Interesting how many gas stations, of all places, that are closing in your area!! Great shots for the day! Hope your week is off to a good start and that you and Logan are having fun being “bachelors”!!!

    Gas stations and convenience stores come and go. New concepts that don’t fit on old properties, and older stores can’t be remodeled to project the new corporate image…so, sell it off and move on. That’s capitalism. The problem with trying to sell these properties is dealing with the buried tanks. I believe that you used to be able to just fill them with sand and be done. I’m not sure the EPA will allow that any longer.

    Those prices would make for a very happy day in Connecticut! It’s amazing to me how fast Mother Nature sends in her demolition crew to take over places like this.
