“When the store name and the price of gas collide” ($7.11 gas at 7-Eleven store)

7-Eleven retail convenience stores were named after the hours 7 a.m. (opening) and 11 p,m, (closing), although many stores are now open all 24 hours a day. An interesting occurrence is when it sells gasoline for $7.11 a gallon.

Info from Licensor: “I was driving past a newly opening 7-11 as their sign was being tested. One of the values being tested was also $7.11 which we laughed about and thought it would make a great TikTok.”

7-11 is supposed to be a gas station not the price of gas at the station…
