Gasoline stations abandoned during the fuel crisis in the winter of 1973-74 were sometimes used for other purposes.  This station at Potlatch, Washington, West of Olympia was turned into a religious meeting hall.  Signs painted on the gas pumps proclaim "Fill up with the Holy Ghost . . . and Salvation."
