Electricity is the future, and the oil companies are starting to sweat. With OPEC fighting Russia by flooding the market with cheap crude, the price of oil went negative briefly at the end of April. Marathon is great at refining fuel, but their name-brand stations leave much to be desired. Speedway was their flagship brand, often combined with fast-food franchises.

Tell us your favorite pit stop in the comments below…and Oh Thank Heaven 7-Eleven!
