Middletown loves full service gas stations?
I understand that this is the day before the storm but this gas station on South Main street lines up at least once a week. I wonder why some people choose this option to wait for service when they could just drive down the street and complete the task themselves.
I asked the opinions from a few folks. One mother doesn't want to leave her vehicle to go inside and leave her child unattended if she only has cash. She also doesn't want to touch the gas pump. I understand that. That pump is handled by thousands of people and sometimes reeks of gas.
Another reason I believe is the gratification of getting service. Oh and the cold. It's worth the tradeoff to stay in your warm vehicle and tip $2.
What are some other good reasons to choose the full service station over the self serve?
