American Sign Language: "gas station"

The compound sign "GAS-STATION" combines the signs GAS and STORE. When doing a compound sign you typically should use only one movement from each part of the sign. Normally the sign for STORE and the sign for GAS (as in "gasoline") each use two movements.
Normally if you use just a single movement the sign GAS means "put in gas," and the sign STORE means SELL.

When you use GAS-(gasoline) and STORE as part of the sign "gas station" you just do a single movement for "GAS" and a single "movement  for "STORE."
