The Last Station Standing

Standard Gas Stations all over the country have been phasing out since the 1970s. One small full-service gas station in Amboy, Illinois may be the last in the nation to still have a Standard sign, but not for long.

As this week comes to a close, Parent Petroleum will be taking down any of the signs that say Standard, Amoco or BP at the station. The station sells 20,000 gallons a month during the summer.

To be a BP station there has to be 100,000 gallons a month sold.

Patrons will soon see a new sign called “Anderson Service” on top of the building. Service will remain the same and maybe even make them a little more competitive with other stations.
