The Story of the Switch from Full-Service to Self-Service Gas Stations (Or, Why Flying A Gasoline is Such a Local Treasure.)

The Story of the Switch from Full-Service to Self-Service Gas Stations (Or, Why Flying A Gasoline is Such a Local Treasure.)

  Flying A Gasoline, nestled in Orinda, CA is a hidden treasure. As a full-service gas station, we offer old-school service in today’s modern era. Nowadays, full-service gas stations seem to be a thing of the past. However, it wasn’t always like this, as self-service stations were, in fact, the rarity.   In 1909, the story of the gas station began, and the first filling stations began popping up in the United States. Back then, an attendant would fill up your vehicle, similar to how Flying A Gasoline is today. Flash forward twenty years, and in 1929, over 143,000 gas stations had crisscrossed the nation. And fast forward to 2018, and full-service gas stations seem to be part of the past.   Flying A Gasoline continues to be cherished by drivers from the Lamorinda area and beyond. We are honored to have won the hearts of so many people, and here are just a few reasons why Flying A Gasoline is such a treasure:   Full pump service for free. Low g ... read more

Are Full Service Gas Stations a Thing of the Past? (Flying A Gasoline is a rarity in California.)

Are Full Service Gas Stations a Thing of the Past? (Flying A Gasoline is a rarity in California.)

Nowadays, it is rare to see a full-service gas station in operation. There are over 120,000 gas stations in the United States, but we don’t know how many of those can be classified as full service. Unfortunately, the United States Census does not keep track of full-service gas stations. As we drive down the street, most likely, there will not a full-service gas station in sight. However, if you are driving down Bryant Way in Orinda, you will see a light at the end of the tunnel: Flying A Gasoline, or one of the only full-service gas stations left.   Full-service gas stations are a rarity in California, let alone the United States. We are dedicated to upholding old traditions, which is why Flying A Gasoline remains in operation. We are one of the only full-service gas stations with attendants who will pump your gas at no extra charge. We also feature smog testing, car wash service, full auto detail service, rental cars, and some of the lowest gas prices in town.   ... read more

April Showers Bring May Flowers: Let’s Make Sure Your Windshield Wipers are Ready

Spring is officially here, and we absolutely enjoy seeing the shining sun, blooming flowers, and the budding trees. Spring is definitely a welcome relief from winter weather. However, we have to be wary of spring showers. April is known for the downpour of rain. In fact, the popular saying “April showers bring May flowers” is practically ingrained in our mind. In order to prepare for Mother Nature’s downpour, we need to make sure your windshield wipers are working in tip-top shape.   Rain results in decreased visibility, a slippery road, and overall, disconcerting driving conditions. Your vehicle’s windshield wipers are your first line of defense against the rain, so we have to make sure they are properly performing. If your windshield wipers are in need of replacement, you will experience any one of the following symptoms:   The rubber on your windshield wiper blades is cracked or broken. Your windshield wipers are leaving behind streaks. Wh ... read more
