Gas Stations are more than just pit stops at which to fill your tank. In a poetic sense, they represent much more. Filling stations are little stepping stones, oases in the desert for the nomad on his journey of freedom. The gas station has fueled the journey, the freedom ride, the jaunt off the beaten path for more than half a century. Gestalten documents the vital history of the gas station in their latest coffee table book It’s A Gas!

Gestalten pinpoints the allure of the gas station, saying it “symbolizes freedom, traveling and the wind of change.” Dating from the ’50s, when gasoline stopped being sold at pharmacies and found a new venue in the hubs along the highway, It’s A Gas! follows the evolution of the fuel centers and the many travelers who passed through them. With a collection of incredible historical photographs and a preface written by legendary talk show host and car collector Jay Leno, this book is a perfect centerpiece for the petrol-head’s coffee table.
