PI Update: Hess Not For Long

This sign will be changing soon.  With last year's sale by Hess of its retail operations to the Speedway LLC, the three Hess gas stations on Disney property will soon be converting from the Hess brand to the Speedway brand.
That includes this station across from Pleasure Island, the station near Disney's Boardwalk Resort and the station on World Drive just south of Magic Kingdom.  You may recall that the stations were originally Exxon branded.
Many Hess stations around Orlando have already been rebranded to Speedway such this one on CR535 north of Disney WorldSpeedway used to operate in Florida years ago but pulled out of the southeastern United States around 2002, selling all their operations to Sunoco.  Now Hess is out and Speedway is back.  Speedway itself is a brand owned by Marathon Oil Company.
