Just have to shake my head....

I'm not one to post pet-peeves, but I have to ask the question......do we REALLY need to have a tv screen with the news on at the fuel pumps at gas stations? Several of these have recently been installed at gas stations in my area and I have to ask, have we reached the point that we need tv's in front of us ALL the f'ing time? It's ridiculous. We have reached a reality that is like a lot of the science-fiction movies we saw as kids with screens everywhere so we are constantly bombarded with propaganda and commercials. Completely unnecessary.

Rant over....

I usually have my tank filled by those valet gas trucks (Booster) so I don’t even have to go to the gas station. Pro tip, don’t go to the gas station. Lol

Amen. It would probably be another dollar more expensive than the marina.

I buy a lot of gas. 20 cents per gallon would end up being a lot of money for me by the end of the year.

Meh. I only drive 10-12k a year so when I do get it instead of at the pump, I donít care. They only come to office complexes, so filling the boat isnít an option anyways.
