Not sure what year or town this is from, but the cops end up crashing the person they are chasing into a pump and the pump at the Exxon explodes. Must be mid-late 90's. Regular is $1.20

55 cent gas at the Gibbs station in the Knightville section of South Portland, ME circa 1975:

Gibbs still has three locations in Maine and 20 in New England overall.  They were a much larger player in petroleum retailing back in the day; for a time the stations were called BPGibbs (reflecting their then-alliance with British Petroleum.) Gibbs now carries unbranded fuel.  Note the Chevron sign in the far background to the left; Chevron left the region in the mid-80s.
