(February 10, 2024) The Petroliana Museum at the AAA Lakeside Storage, 4095 West Center St., in Provo, Utah, has offered visitors a walk through automotive history since 1983. Items like antique porcelain signs, an antique gas station, and close to 100 antique gas pumps from 1917 to the the late 50s are available for viewing.

Some of the collection includes the only signs of their kind in Utah, and some are extremely rare to find anywhere.

Also included in the collection are antique cars and auto memorabilia from the good old days when gas was below 20 cents a gallon. Cheap gas plus full service is what comprised the "good old days".

Employees of AAA Lakeside Storage try to "bring back the old fashioned service greeting visitors with a smile and be of help in a cheerful way."
