An increasingly prevalent and defining aspect of the church in America(Churchus Americanus), is its symbiotic relationship with the gas station or convenience store. Scientists have been unable to ascertain exactly how they benefit each other, but the Church and the Gas Station/Convenience Store are frequently found near each other. This relationship has vexed scientists for the last 50 years, when it was first observed. They are not mutually dependent, but they seem to prosper more when together, and Churches independent of Gas Stations and 7/11 are becoming endangered. 7/11 tends to bond more exclusively with liberal denomination churches. AM/PM is far more versatile but works well with the more traditional and conservative churches.
