Filling stations, also known as gas stations, petrol stations, or service stations, have been featured in every game in the Grand Theft Auto series since Grand Theft Auto III. As limited fuel is not a game mechanic in Grand Theft Auto games, they are not interactive, except for in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, where they are used to create Molotov Cocktails. However they appear as stationary explosive objects; the pumps can be blown up with a hard collision or gun shots, and some service stations in Grand Theft Auto V have accessible interiors. However, the player will receive a two-star wanted level if the petrol pumps are destroyed.
The prices on price boards generally reflect the prices of the place and era of the game in which they are found. For example, fuel prices in San Andreas are $1.34 to $1.49 a gallon, typical for fuel in California circa 1992.
