Great! so now I get to grab my cane and once again walk across the slippery wet driveway area because I need money back. Wow self serve is just sounding better and better. How have we ever gotten along without it? Geez, maybe with all the rainy and snowy weather here and all the walking trips to and fro, I'll get lucky and fall and break a hip so I can sue the station for not maintaining a safe passage for their clientele.


Also, in the PNW. I don't know of a single station that won't accept a debit or credit card. You don't have to pre-pay anything. Just like buying something at the store.

Years ago in between my "real jobs", I worked at a convenience store, but it did not have gas.  One night I was asked to work at another store that did have gas.  A guy came in and gave me $10 for gas.  I turned it on, he got his gas and left.  About six hours later my boss comes in and asks "Why is the gas turned on?"  WHOOPS, I guess people had been getting free gas all night.   Grin Grin

I go to the same gas station (General Store) for 95% of my gas. They usually do require prepay but after yrs of going there a simple wave and they turn the pump on. When I do get gas I always fill up and also HATE prepay. Everything in SC is prepay and a PITA because I never guess right and they get annoyed at returning money. Cool

Just curious, doesn't anyone use gas credit cards? It solves all of the Pre-Pay Problems.

I haven't had anyone pump gas for me in at least 20 years.  I was unaware that anyone did this at all.


Oregon has had this for years, attendants pump our gas!  Personally that is the way I like it.....no gas smell or diesel smell on your hands,  don't have to stand out in the rain or cold.... And heck--jobs are being provided... I remember when most states went to self serve and said it would make gas cheaper!  Ha!  Almost every state we drive thru that has self serve the fuel price is more expensive than here at home in Oregon....

All the pumps at gas stations I go to have a credit/debit card slot that scans your card, you just indicate whether it's a debit card or credit card. It  then asks you for the zip code the card is registered at. Once the zip cold is punched in on the pump keypad, it authorizes it, then asks you to select grade of gas and pump it.

If one doesn't use a credit/debit card they must go into the store and pre pay the clerk. If you give the clerk $20, the clerk sets the pump to stop at $20. If pump is set for $20 and you only pump $15 worth of gas, you go back to the store and collect $5 change. To me, this process is a PITA. I only use my credit/debit card.

And BTW, the pumps at the gas stations I go to will automatically shut off at $75. If you need more gas than what $75 buy you must restart the pump all over again.

This as happened to me before when I totally filled up my truck (24 gallon tank) and also some gas cans.

When the CC companies give me a discount I will use them.

Been doing the self-serve since I was a teen. Admittedly, there are days now that I would probably appreciate just sitting in the vehicle while someone else braves the zero or colder weather. There are a couple of full-service stations in the valley if I REALLY want to use them. (They charge between 6-7 cents more per gallon.)

But, in no way will I EVER support the idea that it is up to freaking GOVERNMENT to tell a service station how to best serve their customers. It's a load of socialist totalitarian BS.
