Shiny and New - Thematic Photography

I thought I might have to miss this week until I remembered that the local petrol station had recently had a make-over and still looks shiny and new. It's at the Select Shop there that I buy my daily paper.

It was only after I took this shot that the price of unleaded petrol was new that day, down one pence to 131.9p per litre.

Even the newly relaid forecourt is remarkably pristine.

I even found out that the station had just been granted a licence to sell beer in the shop. So much for discouraging drivers to drink.

To see what shiny new things have inspired others just cross over to Carmi's thematic-photographic-249,

Oh goodness, what a place, makes paying for gas a bit of fun! I also wasn't sure what to do for this theme, which always happens when time is short for blogging, but I pulled it through too and posted yesterday!

Gosh it certainly looks all glossied-up!
I immediately had to convert you petrol price to see how it compared with what we pay here. Your price equates to $2.61(NZD); we are paying $2.15 per litre for unleaded, which would be 109.078 in your currency.

Anyway - I cannot believe that they would sell beer in petrol stations. How utterly stupid!!

Bob, here in Ohio we have beer shops that a drive-in drive up and get your six pack or case put right in your car, just like it was a fast food joint.

P.S. Nice pics...the gas here is down to $3.09 per gallon at some places.
