World's Tallest Gas Pump

Field review by the editors.

Sapulpa, Oklahoma

The World's Tallest Gas Pump was meant to be a symbolic 66 feet tall, but ended up slightly taller. Its excess height compensates somewhat for the fact that the pump was originally designed to include a spiral staircase and observation deck, which had to be scrapped as too complicated for the mostly volunteer crew that built it. Construction delays postponed its completion from 2016 until May 11, 2018.

The cylinder-topped pump is an skyscraping replica of the type commonly in use when Route 66 became a national highway in 1926. It was commissioned by the adjacent Heart of Route 66 Auto Museum as a way to attract visitors, and it won the Best New Attraction in Oklahoma award in 2018. It does not pump gas.
