Jim Sylvester says the economic viability of small towns in Montana can be predicted by a simple factor: Do they have a Town Pump gas station?

“They’ve done their market research,” said Sylvester, an economist at the Bureau of Business and Economic Research at the University of Montana. “Towns with a Town Pump are going to survive longer than those without one.”
