Another Update on the "Citgo" Gas Station

The full service "Citgo" gas station is under new ownership and is no longer a Citgo. The new owner, who also runs a gas station in Watertown and a few other locations, is currently negotiating with several gas station brands and hopes to convert over to a national brand shortly.

Along with the new ownership, improvements have already been made. While you used to have to wait for the attendant to run back inside to process your credit card, a new booth is located between the pumps so they can process it right away.

The prices at the new station are currently running about 15 cents a gallon less than the other stations in Bedford. I'm not sure if this is a result of the recent drop in oil prices, special "grand opening" pricing or a more overall aggressive pricing strategy. In any case it looks like more competition for Sunoco, Exxon and Shell.
