I picked up a 5 gallon gasoline container at WalMart yesterday. Not Gott brand but seems OK. They also had 2 smaller sizes on the shelf.

Rubbermaid bought Gott and over a period of a few years the Gott name was dropped. That was maybe a few decades ago.

Additionally, for retailers, it would be illegal to sell old style gas cans in the US.

"No Spill" (brand) is more expensive but much better than the usual cheap cans. It stays sealed so less evaporation and potential for spills, as the name says.

+1 - I replaced all of my cans with No Spill ones many years ago. I had to replace the cap on my 5 gallon one after 8 years or so, which seems like a reasonable service life to me. Much easier to use than any other cans I've tried, worth the extra cost to me.
