A 'Gulf' Station
« on: September 18, 2020, 12:41:14 PM »

A Sign I haven't seen in Canada in probably 30 years.....a 'Gulf ' Station!.....and at a kinda out of the way location: Fundy National Park in Alma, New Brunswick. That's 'Irving' Country!  I haven't noticed another Gulf in the Maritimes but what about the rest of Canada?

Was the electronic price display off, or is that just because of the way the photo was taken?

A bit off topic, but I once saw a "Golf" station with Gulf's orange circle logo.

Gulf has entered Mexico as well.  I filled up at one in March.

Here is a Guff service center (no longer there) that kinda borrows the Gulf logo on VA 231 in Cismont - https://goo.gl/maps/kZ2uzHTpETfxF4hc7

Off topic (but still off-brand...) was this Nobil station on US 29 north of Madison VA I photographed in 2007.  it's a Sunoco now.

Edit: That Gulf station in Alma, NB is still there from what I saw on the recent Google streetview.

Yup.....I took the picture two weeks ago. Wonder who's gas you're actually getting as I said I haven't seen any other Gulf Stations in the Maritimes (and Irving's Refinery is only about 100 klicks away!!)
