If you'll be hitting the road this summer (assuming you can afford the gas), take time to refuel at some of the nation's most unique gas stations.

What fun!

Do families still take "road trips?"

I have fond memories of Route 66, "Wigwam Motels" and "trading posts" along the way. I'm afraid that kids now are too busy TEXTING to actually LOOK and sight-see.

These pictures are great, but I have the fondest memories of the gas station styles of the 40's and 50's. That was when we had "full service" at no extra cost and gas was affordable.

I guess I don't spend enough time in the states (I am fond of the quilted madness one)! If I looked hard enough, I'm sure Canada would have its' own unique collection too!!!

Although I am not a fan of Shell , the gas station in the shape of a shell was cool.

Thanks, my husband and I has travelled in the US and been in 39 states and never met one of these stations. Yet, it's at big country.

Exploring the Pacific Coast Highway is on my bucket list! Unfortunately for me, I haven't gotten "my kicks on Route 66" yet either. Some day, I hope...

Back when gas was under a buck a gallon, a great road trip was actually feasible. Nowadays you're more likely to experience the tour by bus or train...
