Adaptive reuse for all the abandoned gas stations

The high price of gas seems to have sparked a new round of interest in hydrogen powered cars. I've always wondered what should be done with the existing 180,000 gas stations in the U.S. if we switch to another fuel sources for transportation. Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks about this as ExxonMobile has proposed turning some of their stations into live/work spaces. The name, Exxonmobilehome, makes me this is a joke, but maybe there is a market for living in glass boxes on top of polluted sites. If this happens in California they should probably hurry up and pass the legislation allowing landlords to prohibit smoking by tenants and guests anywhere on the property.
