Good idea to buy a gas station in Atlanta (Gwinnett Country)

I work in IT and am a first time buyer and thinking of buying Marathon in gas station in GA. Below are the numbers I got from him.
The current owner is an Absentee Owner. I don't want to leave my current job for another 6 months but can be productive in the
evening time and weekend. Is it a good idea to own this? I am aware that its always a good idea to operate it personally but I
don't want to do this for next 6 month.

Lease is around $4900 and the increase is about $100 every year for the next 10 years
inside 50k
Outside 60k
lotto 40k
ATM 400
Money Order 300.
Total expense is around $13k and net income to the owner is around 10k per month.

Please give me pluses and minuses for owning this store. It will appreciate this. Thanks.
