          I saw that this week at Disneyland. I had hoped to take a clearer picture of the gas pumps, only to find they were missing. So I used the older, somewhat fuzzy picture that's now in the article.

          My assumption was that the gas pumps are being refurbished and will return. I thought it was a nice touch that they put in barrels as temporary place-holders. I wasn't aware that the pumps have been gone since the summer.

          I can't believe that management as Disneyland would allow a gas station in Disneyland's Toontown without gas pumps -- especially in that highly visible location. The gas pumps are fun photo op with kids. And it makes no sense to have barrels permanently instead of gas pumps at a gas station.

          I expect to see the pumps return. I hope I'm right.

                Before Chevron at DCA, there was Condor Gas.

                Chevron took over Condor Gas some time between March 2005 and June 2005.
                Great picture! The Condor Gas pumps were much more entertaining than the Chevron pumps.

                I assume that the change had something to do with Chevron's sponsorship of the Autopia. If that's the case, it's a shame that whoever insisted on the change (whether it was someone from Chevron or Disney) didn't understand that old Condor Gas pumps didn't "compete" with the Chevron sponsorship, and that the current Chevron branding on those old pumps doesn't do much to promote the Chevron brand favorably.

                  i certainly was very disapponited - it was a sell-out to corporate cash. this is a favorite tradional photo spot of ours, so i caught it the first visit after it had occured.

                  good stuff from you, i enjoy reading it since my visits started early enough to ride the Flying Saucers.

                      That's sad. I would have thought the "pumps" would be back my now.
