A drive through Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota provides changing options for available gas stations. In Colorado, for what ever reason, Conoco is dominant, with Shell, Phillips (licensed by a Canadian company), and Valero as other principal company options. Conoco continues across Nebraska and into Iowa, with occasional Shell, but Valero almost disappears -- a few in or around Grand Island and Omaha, very few in Iowa, and, apparently 1 (!) in the Twin Cities. We see Marathon in Minnesota and will be looking for what other major companies are represented. No Conoco (or Phillips 66) according to their (combined) website, at least within 50 miles of St. Paul or Albert Lea. We should find some Shell stations according to their web finder.
