Farewell to Esso | El Nuevo Diario
Well there used to be Texaco, Esso, and up until a year or two ago, Mobil gas stations here in Nicaragua, but now there are only Uno, Puma, and Petronic. Uno I believe is Brazilian, Puma is Swiss, and Petronic is Nica/Venezuelan? Anyway, you won’t see any familiar gas station signs here anymore if you are from North America.

I wonder what they're going to do with the On the Run(s) stores? Those are everywhere (where they had Mobil stations) and I think a strong brand name here...haven't yet seen what they are doing with the signs...a lot of signs are changing now...unfortunately now there are so many Uno stations that you can't just say in our example, "turn at the Uno" it is now "the Uno at km diez y media."
