America’s Gas Stations Are Running Out of Time

America’s Gas Stations Are Running Out of Time

Gas stations around the country have been in declines for the past couple decades due to shifting fuel sources away from gasoline and changing land value in cities.

Key findings

“Between 1994 and 2013, the number of retail fueling sites in the U.S. fell from 202,800 to 152,995—a 25 percent decline.”

“In Manhattan, where the best use for a gas station is a site for condominium or office development, the number of gas stations fell by a third between 2004 and 2014—to just 39.”

“There are reports that several political parties may propose a law that would forbid the sales of cars that run on gasoline by 2025.”
