The 76 Gas Station that used to be here closed in 2013 after its owner died. It was the last gas station in Yachats. No one wanted to buy the property and keep it as a gas station, so the nearest place to get a fill-up is eight miles north in Waldport. If you're going south, you'd better have enough gas to go the twenty-five miles to Florence.
The station was razed and in its place is a Dollar General that opened its doors in January 2018.
