Phillips 66 Opens a Gas Station in Worcester
The station is located on West Boylston Street in Greendale, and follows the opening a short time ago of a Phillips 66 in Connecticut.
I'm noticing some weird sea change in gas stations in this area. Gulf has become a bigger presence. Several Exxon stations have switched to Gulf. And Irving Gas, which you used to only see in Maine and pasts of eastern Canada, has started to show up in places. And now Phillips 66, which, as far as I know, was a brand you used to only see out in the southwest and the mountain states.
Exxon/Mobile is getting out of the retail business. I'd have to go hunting around for the news, which was several weeks ago. But this is the basic major change that's taken place, creating a large abyss into which all these other retail operations are rushing to fill.Post a Comment
