This is an old picture around 2008 election time. The other picture is another gas station entirely. There is no photo-shopping. There really are at least 2 different Obama Gas Stations. There may be 3 Obama Gas Stations because one has an electronic gas price sign.





It's obviously photoshopped. Are we just supposed to take your say so? What are you, the President?!?!
Did you not watch the video? The owner of the first Obama Gas Station said "they plan to re-brand 2 more into Obama Gas Stations." There really are 3 Obama Gas Stations.

There are at least 3 Obama Gas Stations in Detroit, MI & at least 1 Obama Gas Station in Columbia, SC shown in the OP.

That is at least 4 Obama Gas Stations.

New Video of New Obama Gas Stations & interview with owner.


Gas Station Owner Changes His 3 Station Name To Honor President Obama
Quote:
DETROIT -- Despite criticism of rising gas prices, the owner of three metro Detroit gas stations named after president Barack Obama said he's standing behind his decision.

Sam Bazzi said he felt so much respect for Obama when he was elected that he changed the name of his stations to "Obama." Now, more than two years later, a decline in the economy and the president's sliding approval rates, Bazzi said he doesn't think the name on his business has any negative impact.

Bazzi said he keeps his gas prices a few cents below those of other major companies.

But what do his customers think about seeing the gas price tag rise next to the smiling face of Obama?

Customer Famous Ellis said he doesn't blame the president for the high gas prices.

"No, I can't do that," he said. "He's doing everything he can to help us out."

Fellow customer Monte Harris said there's other ways to combat rising gas prices than to just pass the blame.

"More than anything, we need to get those electric cars out here," he said. "With that, we don't need to worry about gas that much."

Bazzi said his Obama stations have garnered international attention. He said a French television crew was just visiting him last week.

Bazzi said even if Obama isn't reelected, he won't change the stations' names because the president has already brought him enough good will.

Notice the price of gas pre gallon and that was back in 08. I wonder if it's that price now? From the video Obamush knew about this name change before he became president.

Obama is "Movin-On-Up"

He has at least 4 Gas Stations & 1 Town named after him.



With all the lip service Obama gives alternative fuels I wonder why none of his gas stations sell Ethanol, Bio-Diesel, Hydrogen, CNG, LNG, or Propane? He seems to prefer to support the foreigners. His actions don't match his rhetoric & neither does his customer base.

Obama - The Big Oil President
