Witness Marks

Clock Stopped


When this old Phillips 66 station went tits-up some years back, gas was only $1.13/gallon. The sign and a muddy lot are all that's left. The price sign frozen somewhere in 2000 reminds me of aircraft instruments that freeze up on impact, giving mishap investigators clues to the cause of a crash (thus, "witness marks".)

I only wish it would return to that price someday, cause the current $3 dollars-a-gallon is killing me. And I drive a 4cyl car too.
