    I would say some are not most. They are starting to revamp their stores. With the new acquisition of Quaker Stake and Lube and the convenient gas station stores "Minit Mart" Travel Stores, there should be changes around the corner.

    It will be interesting to see how things will go and what will happen when Tom O'Brien leaves at the end of the year which is very soon. He is staying on until the first quarter to help the new person taking his spot.

    I stopped at a Petro a couple of weeks ago somewhere in Ohio. Somewhere around or between Columbus on my route to Detroit I think

    I forgot how nice these can be. This one is beautiful looks like a mini mall inside, and was decked out with Christmas trees and lots of decorations.

    Far cry from the PFJ's I hang out at, but I do prefer the J parking for vans above all.
