Some gas stations are bright and shiny or sleek and efficient. They at least try not to be eyesores, but here we have a gas station that can only be described as tired, rundown, and generally cruddy. Let's start with the gas pumps themselves: One would not think that erstwhile graffitti artists would bother to deface something as mundane as gas pumps and, in particular, that little window where one needs to see the price of one's gas, but here they do, scratching inanities that all but obscure the numbers. (If these are gang members, they certainly are small-timers.) Thinking of washing your car windows? Forget it; there is no windshield washer fluid to do so, or there is, but it looks so dirty and gross you skip it. Paper towels? Surprise! Someone has broken the dispenser. From a technical (and aesthetic) point, this Chevron station needs help. As for their dubious mechanic services, I avoid it completely; it seems like the kind of garage you take your car to where getting a new battery installed turns into the mechanical version of brain surgery. If the price of the work doesn't give you a heart attack the second hand smoke will. (Armenian men have a love affair with cigarettes; they should familiarize themselves with the mechanics of 24 hour oxygen dependence before fixing one more flat tire.) I might mention that the place does aim for convenience. You can get your soda and chips fix, and they have a working ATM. They also sell some bizarre little novelty gift items at the counter inside for those prone to buying gifts at a gas station.(?) Otherwise, this "engine" needs an overhaul.

No Pep-talk here; just a nice, grungy garage, a team of muy macho mechanics, and a station manager with an unstoppable sense of humor. (He should've been the next great Latino comic.) And they get the job done. I've been coming to them for years. If they don't get it right, they are always fair and square about it, and don't charge me to nail the problem. I am decidedly not interested in the inner workings of cars,so am admittedly vulnerable in this arena, but they take the time to explain what they did and why. And they don't try to cure alll of the ailments of an ageing car just to beef up the bill; they center on the problem at hand, fix it, and then tell me what else it would be wise or downright life-saving to take care of. I appreciate that, and the friendly attitude of the mechanics, and the manager's good humor. He seems to "get" the underlying anxiety of someone bringing a car in that they are not sure what is wrong with, (and wondering if it will cost half their paycheck to fix it!) I'm a regular for more than one reason. Let's face it: some mechanics are just opportunists and rip-off artists. These guys are blue collar mechanics without the bs.

I like all the above rating. I bought a big bite hot dog. It would have been perfect if I wa given the hot dog box to put it in. Before I could get around the corner the hot dog tumble over lost all my topping and the hot dog. Please get the boxes to cover the hot dogs like all the other 7-elevens have. thank you

This is actually a really nice store. Its very convenient to the neighborhoods nearby, it has a comfortable location, this little place is well organized... They don't sell liquor there, but other than that, its still a nice and decent little business they got going on over there!

This is a really convenient spot to get in and out of, and there's enough pumps that there is never a line of cars backed up. You can also get a smog check here or get your car washed and detailed... i think there's also a guy who will buy your old gold!

Friendly customer service, right by my house, I love the overnight shift, he is so friendly and professional. He speaks spanish and english, I love the diversity of the staff. Day shift has more people working and they are quick and friendly..

Convenient location. It has two redbox boxes outside the store and it does get busy towards late night when the bar across the street's crowd is out and looking for something to eat and drink.

Short Stop
The Short Stop is a good dive bar to pre-booze before paying 5 bucks a beer at Dodger Stadium. Its also a good place if you're looking for somewhere to hang out after the game.

Wow this station is much more (.50) per gallon than others just a bit further down the road. Maybe because they are close to 101 entrance they can have higher prices.
Tips & Advices
Driver can find the cheapest gas prices by using an app to search for the lowest prices in their area.  Some apps such as Gas Guru take note of your location, and provide a list of gas stations nearby, along with the cost of gas currently being sold at each station.
There are things you can do to slightly improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Make sure your car's tires are properly inflated, and treat your engine to regular tune-ups. Check your engine's air filter, since a dirty air filter will compromise fuel economy.
Drivers must shut their engine off before pumping gas because it's illegal to fuel with the engine running, even though this law isn't always aggressively enforced. Pumping gas with the engine running can compromise your safety. When your car's engine is running, it's possible for its catalytic converters to generate heat that could ignite gasoline, and start a fire.
Even though many gas stations have warnings advising you not to use your cell phone while fueling, the chances of cell phones igniting a gasoline vapor fire are extremely remote. However, fires at the gas pump may be caused by static electricity discharge. For safe fueling, it's recommended that you turn off your car's engine and avoid smoking at the pump. Also, you should never re-enter your vehicle while refueling.
Many factors contribute to the lack of uniformity in gas prices. Retailers consider their tax responsibilities when setting gas prices. States place varying taxes on gasoline retailers, and a state with higher taxes will have higher gas prices than a state in which the taxes are lower. Also, if a gas station is located in an especially competitive area, a branded operator may receive wholesale discounts that allow the station to sell gas at a lower price. This is done by brands to keep their gas competitive in tight markets.
