Arrrrrrg!

I've been sitting in a line for gas since 7:AM. Still another 1/2 hour wait by the looks of it. Craptastic!

People tip pump operators?


North Jersey is nuts right now for gas. I topped off before leaving Princeton, plenty down there, no lines.

i'd say 95% of all gas stations on long island are self serve only.. so the only person working at the gas station is the cashier inside.

Filled up (because I don't ever want to spend my morning like that ever again).

They only had regular. Don't shoot me. Besides, the Myth Busters are on my side when it comes to the octane thing.

They also clean out windshields, top off our fluids and wipe our asses at the gas stations too.



What do they do for you at your local filler up station?

NJ and Oregon are the only states that do not have self service Gas pumps. It really screws with them when you pull up and start to pump your gas... They scream they are going to call the cops..You gotta love Oregon
