Mileage sign on Interstate 20 East just east of Interstate 10. Only 285 more miles to Abilene! And only 1,539 more miles until the eastern terminus of Interstate 20 in Florence, South Carolina. (Photo taken 3/17/05)

Interstate 20 East approaching Exit 22 - Farm to Market Road 2903 - 1 mile. (Photo taken 3/17/05)
Exit 22 serves Toyah. This is an infamous exit of sorts for OKRoads, as during the Spring Training 2004 Roadtrip, we were heading westbound on Interstate 20 with the fuel light on. We passed Pecos 20 miles ago but saw a sign (like this one) for gas and breathed a sigh of relief. Plus, there was a Texaco sign near the exit, so I figured that all was good. But I was wrong. The station was closed, no gas in sight, and we had to turn back to Pecos. Thankfully we had enough gas to make it back to Pecos. (Photo taken 3/17/05)
Interstate 20 East at Exit 22 - Farm to Market Road 2903 - Toyah. As it turned out, on this particular trip the same thing occurred except I was on Interstate 10 West to start out with. I remembered a gas station near Kent (a few miles west of Interstate 20's western terminus) and so I went to gas up there. The price for a gallon of unleaded was $2.39! The average price in Texas was probably about $2 at this time, but the ironic thing is that as of March 2005, there was a gas station at this exit, and the price for unleaded on this day - $1.92/gallon. Doh! (Photo taken 3/17/05)
