The Petro Truck Stop in Spokane, Washington is located on Interstate 90 at Exit 272. It opened to the public on October 3rd, 2006. The Spokane Petro single handedly doubled the truck parking space in Spokane. They offer 200, full length truck parking spaces. The Petro offers all of the conveniences associated with the chain of other Petro’s nationwide. They offer a full maintenance shop with oil change and tire change capabilities. Petro’s signature Iron Skillet Restaurant is a favorite with the locals already and truckers alike. In addition to the restaurant, Subway has an outlet inside the truck stop. Petro has all of the conveniences of home away from home including a full C-store, shower facilities, game room, TV/Movie lounge, laundry facilities and plenty of lighted parking. The building has a nice, northwest feel to it. It resembles a log cabin with ornamental rock that gives it the “outdoorsman” type feel. I am sure it will be a favorite stopping point for truckers and travelers on their way east or west towards Seattle. The Spokane Petro is only a 5 1/2 hour drive from downtown Seattle and Kent, Washington.
Last week Diesel prices at the Spokane Petro were at $2.899 per gallon, U.S. Fuel is still pricey in eastern Washington, but when the Petro opened it’s doors, it brought down fuel prices in the area about .20 cents. The only other major competitor in the business has been the Broadway Flying J in Spokane, Post Falls and Ellensberg, Washington. This has caused diesel prices to remain high and filling your rig very expensive. Spokane welcomes the Petro to the area and we look forward to lower fuel prices and a nicer truck stop to grace our freeway!
