Should I buy next to a gas station?

I’m looking at duplex in a very desirable neighborhood, where I want to live, close to a ton of amenities. I can pay cash for it, which is part of my short and long term goal. The question I have is... it’s next door to a gas station. Would that turn you off, or would you still go for it, considering the value of a property in this neighborhood is really high.

Is it a deal? Gas station is auto red flags where you need to spend money on Enviro 1 at least.. Contamination on the property devalues it.. It can cost 100s of thousands to remedy..

It could definitely be a reason why they are selling it..
