Founded in the mid-1980s by Jeffrey Pedersen, Seattle’s General Petroleum Museum contains one of the country’s largest collections of privately owned service station memorabilia. Among the museum’s collection are old-fashioned gas pumps bearing such names as Red Crown, antique gas station signs such as Mobilgas, and a collection of Shell Oil jewelry.
