Gas stations at some oases on the Illinois Tollway were closed Thursday morning.

7-Eleven is taking over the sites from Exxon-Mobil. On Wednesday, it began converting some of those stores.

Both the gas stations and convenience stores had to be closed to integrate all the systems.

The Des Plaines, O'Hare and Chicago Southland Lincoln oases were closed for conversion. They were scheduled to reopen by Thursday afternoon.
