Skelly: One of the few gas companies named after a real guy. (Aside from Getty, of course.) Skelly was founded by Bill Skelly in 1919, but was sold in the 1930s. (To Getty, as it turns out.) The brand disappeared in the late 70s.

As a kid who grew up in a gas station family, this was always the dark, cool weird brand. Because it sounded like Skeleton, of course.

Starkweather, North Dakota – you cannot get more barren and windswept than that, can you? But really, it’s not that bad. Population 157. Saaal- ute!

(Note: "ACC." stands for accessories. As in filters, belts, spark plugs.)
