Gas station owners are now facing a decision, to run independently, sign with another oil company, or close their pumps.

Queen's Chevron in Lexington is transforming into a Marathon.

"I'll make it one way or the other," said Queen's Chevron Owner Kent Queen. "I'll always make it, I've been here you know since I was a kid, since I was a teenager. I'll make it, but it's just a shame they're leaving."

Chevron and Texaco are completely pulling out of eleven states, along with Washington DC and parts of Tennessee.

The company says these stations only accounted for eight percent of total U.S. sales volume.
