I noticed the Citgo station in Leo closed about a week ago. Visiting with my neighbor, I told her how surprised I was because they always seemed to do a strong business at that location for years.
She told me the one in Butler has also closed. Does anyone know are these owned by the same people? Is Citgo pulling out of our area?
Gas stations in Butler, Leo, Howe, Kendallville, LaGrange and several other areas are ALL owned by S&S Oil, Auburn.
We have one in Angola also.
Garrett's S&S oil switched from Citgo to Spirit a few months back. Perhaps others are doing the same.
I don't recall how long ago that really was.
At their/we Customers expense let them have their joyous little mind-game-playing thievery free marketing ways in this time of transition is my opinion (and most certainly do hope the new "Point" economic position created by the President-elect shares this opinion somewhat) that it is STILL no excuse for the highway robbery at other Stations that raise their prices so radicly high at any so called hic-up of an speculation then bring it back down only a penney(ies) at a time. If there's one economics education learned by the most of us from this President and administration and the Markets was the education between the cost of a gallon of gas at the pumps and the cost per barell. It certainly gave many of us an refresher course in math!
Yep our Citgo closed last week in Angola. Word has it that it will become a 76 station shortly.
Just hearsay. I was told S&S was closing the stations they leased. The ones they owned would remain open. Last time I was in LaOtto the station there was still open. Did notice the other day some facade work on the old Shell station in Butler.

Who cares the Citgo name is owned by Hugo Chavez anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In my opinion they should close them all anyway instead of funneling money to tha dictator; who would like nothing better than the United States implode anyway!!!!!! Death to Dictators!!!!
P.S. The spirit name is Hugo's way of tricking the uninformed person....... Since most of the population has figured out the link between Citgo and Chavez... He has changed the name to Spirit ( american Sounding huh??).!!!
Actually, Chavez was legally elected by his people and seems to have their best interests at heart.
Just because a leader of a country in South or Central America doesn't like our policies and isn't afraid to voice it, doesn't make him a dictator.

Lemons are rude,
Bananas are perverted,
And kumquats are just, plain evil...
Local S&S stations are owned buy Stonestreets,a family out of Auburn.They run most of the Citgo franchises in this area unless things have changed since I worked for them.
