    Fun to watch. Back in 1962 when I was a high school sophomore in first year Auto shop class the instructor told us that if you had a full service gas station then you needed 24 customers who not only bought their gas there but had all their service work done there and bought their tires there. I think at that time there were still 15 full service gas stations in town.. Now there are 7 places with gas pumps and two of them combined have more pumps than all 15 or 20 stations did back in the 5o's and 60's No dealerships left and about ten mechanics shops including 3 in tire stores left in town.
