-77-2-148 (Wisnosky 2003). Perhaps the only feature whose distribution is restricted almost exclusively to the Pittsburgh metropolitan area is aw monophthongization. This means that words such as ''house'', ''down'', ''found'', or ''sauerkraut'' are sometimes pronounced with an "ah" sound instead of the more standard pronunciation of "ow", rendering pronunciations such as `hahs' `dahn' `fahnd' or `sahrkraht'. Overview Many of the sounds and words found in the speech of Pittsburghers are popularly thought to be unique to the city. This is reflected in the term "Pittsburghese," the putative sum of these features in the form of a dialect. However, few of these features are restricted solely to Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) or the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. Instead, many of them are found throughout southwestern Pennsylvania, the Midland dialect region (Midland American English), or even large parts of the United States service_area New York (New York metropolitan area), Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh metropolitan area), and Chicago (Chicago metropolitan area) metropolitan areas, Southern Tier of New York, southern Wisconsin service_type Local, commuter, charter, contract, and yellow school bus service, Megabus

States and announced plans to expand the use of the Gulf brand beyond its parent company's Northeastern United States base. Its promotions have included sponsorship of major sporting events in the area with advertisements for Gulf in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania). To take one case as an illustrative example of the Gulf revival, after Texaco's 2001 merger with Chevron, many former Texaco stations in Pittsburgh switched to Gulf since Chevron does not service the Greater Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh metropolitan area) area. As a result, the Texaco brand name disappeared from the area in June 2004 when the nonexclusive rights agreement with Shell (Shell Oil Company) expired, with Shell itself expanding in the area by means other than Texaco but, on June, 2006 Chevron (Chevron Corporation) gave exclusive rights to the Texaco brand name in the U.S. and sold some BP gas stations in the southeast which were Gulf gas stations. In New England, former Exxon stations have been rebranded as Gulf, in accordance with the consent decree that allowed the merger of Exxon and Mobil. Many of the former Exxon stations feature a rectangular logo that fit into the existing sign standards used by Exxon. Gulf refers to the look as its "sunrise" imaging.
