Sifford’s Service Center was the last full-service gas station in Indian River County.
Owner Wiley Sifford Sr. (left) and son Wiley Jr. (right) wouldn’t have it any other way.
However, with its 10,000-gallon gas tanks having failed the state’s vacuum test, the station at 1550 U.S. 1 in Vero Beach will no longer sell gas. Instead, the station will focus on repair work.
See Issue 179 to find out more about the owner’s agonizing decision to get out of the gas business.
