Remember the days when you were lucky to find a single gas station open on Thanksgiving?  Yeah, those days are long gone.

However, in the wake of more and more large stores opening on Thanksgiving in recent years, many others are refusing to turn the family holiday into a chaotic shopping scramble, and thus stealing Black Friday's thunder.
