All were excited to catch of glimpse of the new up-to-date and very modern station as they enjoyed a free donut and coffee in celebration of the opening.

Gas station employee, Dixon Prince, was eager to get his hands on the new pumps.

Carrier Food and Fuel continues to be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
