That is cool, it is branded Standard. I remember reading somewhere that there is one Standard for X amount of Chevron stations.

All except for one. Chevron, the West Coast and Southern descendant of Standard,

has strategically maintained one Standard gas station in each of its 16 states of operation,

ensuring the storied name remains a legally active trademark to this day.

One of them currently stands in San Francisco, California. .. ... cool

I filled up at the Standard in Vegas...got sucked in by the free gas sign. LOL, like thats going to happen.
But it didn't really hit me that I was filling up at a "one off" station. Interesting Standard history lesion.

standard was a company owned station

chevron was a franshise - owned and operated by independent retailers.
