Sometimes even such large objects as Gas Stations can be faked to look more popular… This ones in Dagestan, Russia look like “Shell” or “BP” but are “Shelf” and “BG”

    Dagestan?!?! How many ‘stans are there?!?


    • sugar daddy says:

      anything that ends with a STAN is a muslim state. some of them used to be part of the 15 USSR republics but after the fall of soviet union new states popped up.

      cant stop,

      i dont think making gas stations with names of foreign companies will mean that they get a lot of business.

    • Richard S. says:

      United Kingstan
      New Yorkstan
      Los Anglestan

      and any place that Muslims think they can invade and get their hands on…

    • mescovic says:

      Dont forget where i live Tatarstan, Russia

  3. the great fubini says:

    NICE! Down down road from my original home, we have a Thirftway Store that still selling regular leaded gas. And my dad still fills up there with his ’64 Ford Fairlane. So cool.

  4. Darek from Poland says:

    Does “gas” (on the “Shelf” station) mean a propan-butan fuel ?

    As I see the prices level are similiar to US-“gas” (in Europe known as “benzin”) prices level.

    Leftists, which governs EU, forced high taxes in fuel. So in EU there are two times higher prices of fuel.

    • onitake says:

      do you prefer rightists, darek?

      and it’s not called “benzin” everywhere:
      france: essence
      uk: petrol
      spain and portugal: gasolina
      ok, many other countries used “benzin” or some derivative of it. (just checked via wikipedia, interesting…)

      • comrade says:

        as a matter of fact it is called “benzin” in Russia
        as a matter of fact it is called “Benzin” in Germany

        not mentioning several other countries

        Rightists create values, then leftists take them away and try to spread to the people, when everything has collapsed the rightists rebuild everything, create values, then leftists take them …
        and so on…

      • comrade says:

        do you know why many people in EU prefer leftists?

        because they say that the values shall be taken and distributed.

        these countries are rich.
        so they just can not imagine, that it is possible, that there will be nothing to distribute. 😉

        values shall be created to be distributed.
        leftists are not good at that.

        if money would grow on trees I would be leftist.
        otherwise – neah…

      • Darek from Poland says:

        But I still have not an answer if the “gaz” for 11.50 rubli ($ 0.46 per liter) means propan-butan fuel.

        In Poland I pay 2 złote ($0.77) per liter of LPG (propan-butan fuel) but benzin (US-gas) costs 4.30 złote ($1.65) per liter.
        For 5. years of LPG fuel driving I save about 20.000 złoty.

        There’s no problem with LPG tanking in France and Italy (known there as GPL). Some problems to find it in Germany. Rather not possible for tourist to find it in Austria.
        Is there LPG in Russia ?

    • Chief Political Scientist, Institute for Newly-Independent States says:

      Yes, leftists govern EU, and wish to dominate Poland and other Eastern Europe states and make them lackey states, much as Hitler and Stalin did, but with use of petroleum jelly instead of bullets.

      I hope the Poles unite with Brits to keep EU from complete takeover.

  7. Pete says:

    She IF

    She IF yo station has any gas u can fill up!

  8. My truck runs on the Nuclear waste I move with it, I never been to a petrol station with it

  9. zax says:

    Interesting, 95 octane petrol is almost two times more expensive than 92 octane one.
    20 roubles = 0.8 USD, am I correct?
    It is about half of average european price, but still.. one would expect petrol to be much cheaper in Russia, the largest producer of crude oil in the world.

    By the way, the cheapest petrol I ever saw was in the United Arab Emirates, few years ago. Price was one American dollar for one _British_ gallon (which is 4.5 litres).

    russia full of fakes!

  12. NaBUru38 says:

    Spaceface, in Brazil there are many fake gas stations. One of them is called “13R”, whose logo is identical to the Petrobras’ “BR” one (http://g1.globo.com/Noticias/SaoPaulo/0,,MUL29858-5605,00.html). Others copy the colours of Shell/Texaco but don’t use any logo, and some have the logos ando colours of a certain brand but the fuel comes from another company.

  16. Caleb Green says:

    Gas prices these days are just getting higher, i think the government should focus more on alternative energy.-.”

  17. gas prices are still on the rise today, we should go Alternative Fuel:’;

  18. gas prices would steadily go up and the supply dwindle and the saudis like to increase their profit margin*,”

  19. Alex Andersson says:

    The suffix ‘stan’ comes from an old Iranian word which literally means ‘place where one stays’ or ‘place to stay’. It’s mostly used to designate an area of land that has been settled by Muslims.

    Not all Islamic countries use the term ‘stan’, but some of you are correct that you will mostly find Muslims there.
