The Bigfoot Gas Station at Murray Road and Central Avenue in Mckinleyville closed down last Thursday. A spokesman for Big Oil & Tire, which owns the gas station, could not be reached by press time. However, an employee at the station said that the station needed some costly repairs, Rather than make the investment, it was decided to close the station permanently.
Bigfoot Gas featured one of the best murals ever painted in Humboldt County. Then some changes were made. After that the mural was good, but not as good. The source of this photo is unknown. It was posted somewhere on the internet and ended up in our archives.
