‘Cause like before, they were embarrassed about the situation:

The station is closed now but they’re working on a big refurbishment project that was supposed to end last month and now is supposed to end next week.
This area above the gasoline tanks is due for a repaving, it looks like, but all the covers were left off when the workers took a day off, apparently.

I guess somebody goes down into the tank to get all the water out?
I don’t know.
Petroleum powers cars and ships – I suppose that’s The Message from the Builders of 225 Bush.
Contrast that with the message from the current owners of 225 Bush found on this Wiki entry, which reads like an advertisement for potential tenants.

State Bar Disaster Team Doesn’t Overreach.
There we go, now it’s even-Steven.
Actually, our State Bar should have a DC-3 on standby so that its disaster team could more quickly parachute into places like Richmond CA, you know, just like D-Day, you know, When Disaster Strikes.
Actually, our State Bar wants people like attorney Nick Haney to call the whaaaaaaaaambulance, to complain about how the State Bar street team is just like the Waffen-SS. It sends a message to all the others.
Keep on keeping on, State Bar Disaster Team!
PS: Oh BTW, exactly zero people were hospitalized due to the latest Chevron refinery fire / explosion / incident. So the chances of any one person garnering “hundreds of thousands of dollars” from watching soot zoom up thousands of feet into the troposphere are, similarly, exactly zero.
Though his mind is not for rent
Don’t put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day’s events

Always hopeful, yet discontent,
He knows changes aren’t permanent,
But change is.

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide
Exit the warrior
Today’s Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day
