I was in Baltimore the other day when my low fuel light went off. Instead of chancing getting on I-95 and finding a station within 15 miles, I decided to look for a station. I couldn’t find one with 3 miles of the downtown area!
(I finally found one near the zoo, 45 minutes later and much more stressed than I needed to be.)
I then thought about Downtown DC where I’m from. I could only think of 2 stations within a few miles of the White House area.
Question: Do other cities seem to have a dearth of gas stations in the inner city? Or did L’Enfant just plan poorly?
