After 21 years, Lakes Gas, formerly located at West Lake Street and Patriot Avenue in Pequot Lakes, moved its last bulk tank to another location.
On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the company moved its 65-foot, 60,000-pound, 30,000-gallon tank with a crane, pivoting it onto a truck and hauling it away to Longville.
Branch Manager Rob Larson said the move has been long in the making. Lakes Gas bought its new Jenkins location in 2012. The company had contemplated moving sooner, but wished to determine how accessible the new location would be with the expansion of Highway 371 to four lanes. The company is working to consolidate its assets, and the move of both the company and the tanks is a part of that plan.
