This is a neat interior station display sign that I haven't seen another of, since purchasing this one over 30 years ago. The gas price of 88 cents per gallon will give you some idea of the vintage. This two-side CITGO sign is lighted from within, and features the CITGO logo on one side, and a nifty exterior shot of a vintage ROSE CITY OIL CO. station on the other.

By the way, if anyone knows which "Rose City" in the U.S. this sign might be from, please post that info here. I remember buying this sign at an antique shop somewhere "down south" way back when.

This sign is in excellent condition. Any strange "spots" or whatever that you might see in the photos are simply reflections from other things in the room. This sign measures 10" wide by 13-1/4" high by 4" thick.

I’ve replaced both interior florescent lighting tubes and the lamp starter. So, this unit should work fine for quite a few years to come. The sign is also equipped with a built-in on/off switch.

The price is $155, plus shipping. Thanks for looking.

The lowest I ever remember seeing gas prices at was 79 cents a gallon right after the 1st Gulf War. That looks about right for the timeline of the station design as well. Not sure if this is where it's from, but I know Jackson, Michigan is known as the "Rose City".
