    heard on the radio they are ceasing retail operations and only doing exploration.

    How many other places sell diesel? Don’t have one, but that’s the only station I’ve ever noticed they have it.

    The reuters link doesn’t work for me… but I found a related article here:



    What will happen to the toy trucks Hess came out with every year? I guess mine will only go up in value…

    Also, see this for diesel locations:

    Yeah I was thinking about those hess trucks.

    The Article says that they will sell their retail operations. Most likely, the new owners will licence the Hess name and will continue to sell Hess products.

    Given Hess isn’t that big in this part of the country, I don’t see why they would do that. I’ve only seen a few Hess stations in the DC area, they aren’t common here like in NJ and NY.

    I’ll miss their free air pumps and their usually low prices.

    Argh! Living in Clarendon and driving a diesel, this is potentially very inconvenient (even though I only fill up about every other month). I guess going up to the Liberty station at 29 & Military isn’t the end of the world, but darnit the Hess is just so handy!

    Hopefully the owners of that site will keep it open and continue to sell diesel; I don’t much care what name they do it under.

    Diesel stations are not hard to find. There’s more than most people think because many stations don’t put diesel prices on their signage. (2000, VW Golf).

    fine, what other places have a kerosene pump like the hess does?

    You can’t get whale oil any more either

    Yes, but I can still use kerosene for my WW2 jet fighter.
