Does anybody know?????

Hello everyone:
Are there any best in and out gas/service station along the highways or a site where I might find information about them.Are there any publications that I can purchase? As I grow older I'd prefer the
ones with AMPLE access and EXIT possible..........
Many thanks to you all!!!!!! araucano.

We just watch the signs along the Interstates when a city or town is coming up. We pull off and head for the closest gas station or truck stop, whichever is there and closest. We haven't picked up one of the books since they'd have to be replaced every year as they're quickly out of date.

9 times out of 10 the service stations along the major highways are easy in easy out. It's usually when you get away from the interstate that it get tricky.
And you can look up the locations of Flying J's online...

Another way to look ahead is using Google Earth and check out first hand what a Station's property looks like and if you deem
It accessible .

The apps that we use are:
My DAT Trucker Services - shows most truck stops, walmart's and rest areas
Love's - shows Love's truck stops, deals there and fuel prices
Pilot/Flying J - shows Pilot and Flying J truck stops and most fuel prices
Gas Buddy - shows most gas stations and fuel prices (sometimes diesel too)
While Thom drives I look at the apps and see what the distance's and prices are before deciding where to stop.
