Associated Press reports Hess is selling off all its gas stations. That's bad news for Hess-mad West Roxbury, which has the city's highest per-capita number of Hess stations.

    They're not useless at all

    They put air in your tires, which is useful. Do people really drive vehicles without an air gauge in their glove box??? In other words, do people really climb into their 1.5-2.5 ton vehicle and drive around with no way of knowing how much air pressure is in their tires?

    I can't wait to buy gas at a

    I can't wait to buy gas at a station that doesn't reject my credit card every single time at various locations when the zip code is entered at the pump. Funny how it always worked at the counter after a ten minute wait with everyone else who got rejected. We can only hope that the same IT people aren't going to be the ones running the systems that do the drilling.

    Hess or no?

    Right here on Hess's own website is a press release saying that Hess is "Fully exiting the Company’s downstream businesses, including retail, energy marketing, and energy trading".

    I interpret that to mean that Hess will sell the gas stations to one or more competitors, not close them down.

    They don't shovel the sidewalks

    Hopefully, whoever runs the station on Centre in the future will be better at shoveling the sidewalks. The current operator only does so reluctantly after several days. Better yet, close it down so the neighborhood will be more pedestrian friendly.
