More petrol stations

This thread is old but I'm so glad I found it! Here are some crazy and interesting gas stations, mostly designed by architects.

This one is the Tramway Gas Station designed by Albert Frey, 1963. It's in Palm Springs.

In a similar vein, this gas station was designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1966 and then refurbished in 2011 by Les Architectes FABG in Montreal.

Floating Gas Stations

More gas stations - these ones have floating roof structures

Skovshoved Gas Station by Arne Jacobsen in Denmark. It was completed in 1937.

Matúškova Gas station in Slovakia is new (2011) by Atelier SAD. I love the curved concrete of it.

Not much is known about this gas station but it is in Hanover, Germany and was built in 1953.

Well I guess I could bump it up a bit as well
We have rather typical stations here in Poland, but there are a few nicer ones, here's probably the most popular:

I just love the gas stations from the 50s and 60s. They're timeless!

Petrol station in Milan, built in 1953 by Mario Bacciocchi.
