There Are Too Many Gas Stations in the World

And there especially too many at busy intersections that make accessing said gas stations next to impossible. This station, at the infamous intersection of Clarkson and Manchester, was only accessible from southbound Clarkson, and one small, impossible to enter entrance from westbound Manchester. Not surprisingly, it went out of business, in an area with numerous other gas stations. On average, when I get gas, I'm one of maybe two other people at any given station. Do we really need so many wasteful slabs of concrete?
