High gas prices

Renee Simon of Port Arthur fills the tank of her Honda del Sol at Fast Lane No. 27 in Groves on Tuesday, July 12, 2005. Although the gas station is down the street from a Total Petrochemical refinery, the price of a gallon of fuel was similar to other retailers around the Golden Triangle. Gas prices across the U.S. are at new record highs.

So are gas drive-offs.

Creative picture. My only critique is that I would like to see the price board displayed somewhere in the frame, showing the high prices.

Good point. It wasn't physically possible, but it's a good point.

I tried to line up a catalytic cracker in the background. I drove around to every one in the area and couldn't find a single gas station within line of sight of cracker steam towers.
