Perhaps Speedway's jingle "We're on your way, the convenient stores of Speedway" will becomes as familiar to Central New Yorkers as the iconic green Hess and their holiday season toy trucks.

As of the first week of August, all Utica area Hess gas stations have been converted to Speedway, a convience store chain based in Ohio that is ubiquitous in the Midwest.

The new Utica Speedway stations are located on Genesee Street in North Utica near Thruway exit 31, Genesee Street in South Utica and the location pictured above, Commercial Drive at Greenman Ave in New York Mills.

There's a large yard in East Utica on First Street filled with old gas dispensers. What's the story? It was a subject of a CNY Journey.
