    Not having one (yet) in Oklahoma doesn't mean anything.
    Maybe. Just seems Oklahoma is more natural for expansion for a Texas company than Alabama. But you are right there are very few outside of Texas, so it means very little.

    Does seem weird, with 2 of the busiest interstates in America, not one in the state on either I-35 or I-40. Has to be something about Oklahoma. We fit every possible demo they could want.
    Don't forget I-44. Traffic from southern California comes to OKC on I-40 and gets on I-44. This is major because this is how traffic gets to points East and NE and New England, etc. Especially for big trucks. People don't realize how much comes through OKC. Just look on an atlas and see it.

    Buc-ees does not allow semi trucks.

    Looks like ODOT selected the plan for the interchange. Hopefully Buc-ee’s likes it.

    I have been to...A LOT of Buc-ee's.


    Having said that, the absolute BUSIEST one I've ever seen is the Buc-ee's on I-10 and the Beach Express Highway. It is directly smack dab in between Mobile, Pensacola, and Gulf Shores and it is absolutely PACKED. I mean 10x as busy as any Buc-ee's I've been to. Absolute perfect location for it. That area gets waaaaaaay more tourist travel than ANY Buc-ee's in Oklahoma would ever get.

    Is this what Stitt changed the original plan to ?
    I guess the Chickasaw nation won't contribute as originally planned. They were going to pay 10M of the 17M total cost

    Amarillo City Council approved incentives today for a Buc-ee’s location on I-40 at Airport Boulevard. Not as close to Oklahoma City as those in DFW, but it’ll be good to have for folks heading west.
