Non-Service Station

I stopped for gas this morning and was treated to yet another downgrade in service and convenience. First you could pay at the pump and it was good. Then you could pay at the pump IF you entered your ZIP code, it was less good. Now for even more fun, you may pay at the pump with you credit card IF you enter your ZIP code, and IF you want less than 35 dollars worth of gas.

With gas at $3.40 a gallon and most cars holding at least 11 gallons, this will force most people inside to make their purchase, or put in less than 35 dollars, put the hose back, and make a second purchase.

Customers first at Texaco. I'll go somewhere else for gas.
