Hess gas stations are no more, but its annual toy truck is back.

Hess Toy Trucks on Monday unveiled a red firetruck and ladder rescue that it will begin selling Nov. 1.

Hess Corp. had been selling toy trucks at its gas stations during the holidays since 1964. Last year, the company announced it was selling its retail gas stations to Marathon Petroleum. It remains in the business of finding and drilling for oil and natural gas.

The toy will be sold online for $30.99 and at mall kiosks around New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Batteries are included. The toy has oversized tires, swiveling chrome-detailed fire hose nozzles and LED lights, and four sound effects.
