I also recall only the Amoco signs here in the Boston area (I do remember 
the big sign in Dedham, after getting off 128 at the GM Plant, going past 
the GEM Department Store (Later Lechmere) then seeing the AMOCO sign just 
before passing Mr. Donut at the rotary.....

And I remember Jenny stations that later became ???? (I am wracking my brain 
trying to remember.....)

And remember that Getty ONLY sold Premium gas in the Leaded days.....
