Buc-ee's the best gas station of all time is going to open their first ever Non-Texan Buc-ee's store. According to AL.com, the Texan sized gas station company will open the biggest gas station Alabama has ever seen. The Alabama Buc-ee's is supposed to be 53,254-square-feet. "More than 21 times the size of the average convenience store. It will feature an eye-popping 120 fuel pumps." The craziest part about all of this is they will be hiring 250 workers. That's 250 jobs, that is HUGE! Just like In-N-Out Burgers, Buc-ee's takes care of their workers with their compensation. $13 to $17 an hour doesn't sound too bad, does it? Buc-ee's should have looked into Texas' favorite neighboring state Louisiana, as their first Non-Texan Buc-ee's. We are okay with becoming the second Non-Texan place to welcome a Buc-ee's. We think Shreveport would be the perfect place to bring a Buc-ee's.

4 Reasons Shreveport Needs a Buc-ee's:

  1. Clean Restrooms for all! Imagine if Shreveport was that place where people driving cross country would say "Wait until we get to Shreveport! They have the good restrooms at Buc-ee's" Shreveport should be celebrated for our clean restrooms and not our horrid roads.
  2. Jobs! 250 jobs to be exact, we could use those here. Imagine the boost that would take place in our little Shreveport economy.
  3. Gas is easy to access. 120 pumps mean everyone gets gas, the kind of gas you put in your car. Have you ever tried to fill up on Pines Road off I-20 in Shreveport? Every other gas pump is messed up and the lines to get a gas pump that works takes up over 30 minutes. More gas pumps mean happier Shreveporters and people who drive through our fine town.
  4. Beaver Nuggets! The list of snacks that we could have easy access to would make everyone in Shreveport happy. From the best beef jerky to kolaches, we could use the vast snack selection in Shreveport. Why are all the snacks at Buc-ee's sinfully delicious?
