Doing My Lincoln Highway Centennial Thang-- Part 2

At the intersection of Illinois highways 23 and 72, east of Genoa, there was a farmhouse with a banner outside reading "Pray for my Son."  Not sure what that was all about.  There is also one of those neat oval barns as I approached the town.

Gas in Genoa was $3.80.  There is an restaurant with a neat sign reading Roberts Drive-In.  Looks like it has been there for quite a long time.

Gas in Sycamore was $3.76, proving again that the farther you get from Chicago, the cheaper gas gets.

Entering Sycamore on Il-23 which is a really built-up corridor with four lanes, lots of stoplights and traffic as well as most any SHS (Stabdardized Homegenized Stuff), I saw the population of the city is 43,900. I imagine that doesn't count the students at NIU.

Gas in Dekalb was $3.70 at the Road Ranger so filled up.  It is nice to have gas prices here in Illinois finally coming down.  The wonderful GRBs at BO kept it as high a s long as they could to make those huge profits that you no longer see publicized for some reason.
