Sadly, Utterly Abandoned Filling Stations

We’ve all driven by countless deserted gas stations. Had I ever thought about it in years past, I would’ve taken pictures of dozens along the highways and byways of our travels.

Soda pop in a plastic container with a twist-off lid just isn’t as refreshing.
