SHEETZ IS TAKING OVER THE WORLD!
Hello! My name is Jenna Casebolt, and as a relatively new driver (whose parents make her pay for her own gas) I have been a frequent visitor to gas stations. Through my travels over and about Lynchburg and its surrounding counties, I have noticed the number of Sheetz in the area has increased dramatically in the last two years. First we had zero Sheetz stations, and then -POOF-we have four.
In order to document this phenomenon I drove to the four Sheetz in the Lynchburg area and recorded their location using a handy gadget of modern technology, a Global Positioning System (GPS). This information, as well as the stores' addresses, phone and fax numbers, store numbers, and gas prices went into a computer program called ArcView GIS 3.2a. The layout you see below was created using ArcView.
