New at the Gas Pump: TV at Murphy Oil Stations

JUNE 5, 2006 - Posted at 4:43 p.m. CST

 

NEW YORK, NY - TV seems to be everywhere these days.  At the supermarket, the mall, and now, thanks to a Michigan-based start-up company, the gas pump.

Detroit-based Gas Station TV has been testing its service for several months in Dallas with TV monitors installed above gas pumps.  The televisions show short clips of news, weather and traffic, and, of course, advertising.

The company plans to expand to 100 stations, all owned by Murphy Oil of El Dorado and based at Wal-Mart stores.  The expansion will be in Atlanta, Dallas and Houston.

Several advertisers bought spots on the service during the test run in Dallas, including PepsiCo, Goodyear and All-State.
