With its sloping, spanish-tiled roof and matching fill-station canopy, Emerald Oil looks more like a roadside chateau than a roadside gas station. Nonetheless, visitors to this La Mesa hot spot can fill up their tanks—both gasoline and propane—and pick up any number of little conveniences. Inside the station shop, beer, liquor, and tobacco products rub elbows with a wide variety of sodas, coffee, and snacks. Customers can pick up lotto tickets and newspapers or ask the clerks’ assistance in filling up propane tanks and dream journals until 10 p.m. daily.
