where is the edward hopper gas station
The subject was a composite of several gas stations Hopper had visited.  According to Hopper’s wife, the gas station motif was something he had wanted to paint for a long time. Hopper struggled with the painting. He had begun to produce new paintings at a slower rate than before, and had trouble finding suitable gas stations to paint. Hopper wanted to paint a station with the lights lit above the pumps, but the stations in his area only turned the lights on when it was pitch dark outside, to save energy. 
Gas is a 1940 painting by the American painter Edward Hopper. It depicts an American gas station at the end of a highway.
Many sources within the media have made use of the inspirational work of Edward Hopper including films and television programmes.
Gas is one example of where Hopper uses no people at all and the objects of the gas station serve entirely as the scene. It is perhaps his most famous painting except for Nighthawks.

Edward’s wife Jo wrote about the painting in a letter to Edwards sister Marion: “Ed is about to start a canvas – the effect of night on a gasoline station…” Well if eerie was what he was going for, he nailed it. I’d say there are three subjects Ed likes to cover, solitary people, melancholy and the lonely road. Gas has all three of ‘em! Yet, it’s kind of confusing. The guy doesn’t look like he works at the gas farm. I mean, aren’t those guys supposed to wear grease stained overalls instead of a three-piece suit? So what is he doing all alone, at a gas station, without a car, at the edge of a forest? No but really, since our view is blocked, what IS he doing?
“This thing is so far gone,’’ said Elizabeth Igleheart, National Register coordinator for the northeastern United States.
“Everybody was surprised by that,’’ Burke said of the state’s latest objection. “Surprised and frustrated.’’
