    Went to the new Royal Farms off Claiborne tonight a little bit after midnight to grab a soda and snack. Chairs up, doors locked, no one there. Is this a 24-hour gas station like most of the gas stations in the area? Wawa, Sheetz and most Sunocos are that way.

    Food aside, what is the price per gallon?

    Not in residential areas. And others may keep the pumps open but the store closed. Sunoco in the neighborhood closes around midnight

    Thank you. Gas price is 2.50 a gallon with rewards card. Hoping that is the norm and not just grand opening prices.

    Good to know! I assume it probably has to do with staffing since they have a big hiring banner on the lawn.

    ...and cheaper gas, which we could use. Gas is $2.63 - 2.65 at other places in Ashburn. $2.59 at Royal Farms without the rewards card. Cheaper with the rewards card. Not exactly the drop in price that Sheetz or Wawa brings when they open a store, though.

    Very few businesses in in Ashburn are 24 hours and most that try give up shortly. Not enough business. Ever drive around here after 10pm?

    With Metro and anticipated growth, it won't be long before 24hr gas stations are the norm, especially off of a highway exit.

    On the gas price front, be interesting to see how the price at the new Harris Teeter station down past Arcola, by rt. 50 compares to RF over time.

    So far, not a fan of Royal Farms. Went there first day, waited over an hour to buy mediocre chicken, and filled up with the whopping first day "welcome to the neighborhood" discount of $2.59 per gallon. :( signed up for Loyalty Card, and have waited 3 days for any action to be taken. Tell me when the new WaWa in Ashburn will be open??

    Just found out that discounted gas of $0.10 ($0.25 for the first month) is only if you link your rewards card to your bank account.

    A highway that charges an arm and a leg each time to get on or off? I'll believe it when I see it.

    buc-ee's is cool, but it's for big interstates, not neighborhoods.
