Located in kingwood, WV is an old ESSO gas station where old gas station memorabilia is displayed out in the open. Apparently the owner is a collector of gas station artifacts, judging by a sign in the window seeking such items. The Esso brand is the international brand name for ExxonMobil and originated when it was known as the Standard OIl company (Esso is the phonetic of their initials, S O). In 1972 the ESSO brand was largely converted to the ExxonMobile name, but in the rest of the world it remains the brand name for ExxonMobile.
