BP to Shell to Mobil

A downtown gas station's quick changes

From the March, 2018 issue

If you look at the gas station at S. Main and William on Google Maps, you'll see the building shows up with three labels: Mobil, Shell, and BP. The overlap is the result of a rapid cycle of ownership and branding.

The station at the south end of town was a BP for many years, but it recently went through a single year as a Shell station before changing ownership and debuting as a remodeled Mobil in December. New owner Mike Jamil bought the business with his partners, brothers Ziad and Sean Koza, in September.
