The gas station consists of seven double-sided fuel dispensing islands for three grades of gasoline and diesel, under a full canopy. The gas station also features debit/credit card sales point inside the minimart. There is also a tire air pump and auto vacuum station.
The project completion date is Dec. 18 with final contract cost of $8.9 million dollars.
