The one and only gas station

Sorry for using the word 'gas' instead of petrol but Chuuk (or Truk) is closer to U.S. home land security than it is to Britain. According to Wikipedia 'gas is one of the four major states of matter, consisting of freely moving atoms or molecules without a definite shape and without a definite volume. Compared to the solid and liquid states of matter a gas has lower density and a lower viscosity' and this is probably why Americans use the word gas for petrol.
