If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?

Pretty much proves you don't have to be the brightest bulb on the tree to be a gas station attendent. Let's see, we can have some empty stall where people pull in, stop the engine (after they get done with their cell phone call), get out of their car, authorize the card, wait, open the filler door, remove the gas cap, insert the nozzle, open the nozzle, pump, replace the nozzle, wait for a receipt to print out, get back in the car, start the engine, leave, and wait for another customer to pull in...or... have one person pumping gas continuously! Duh!

I just saw a sticker on my Amoco pump stating it had ethanol in it..That was the only reason I used amoco because it was the best. WTF I'm i supposed to buy now!

We were out in the Skater yesterday, and midgrade 89 octane, was $4.259 at Burnt Store Marina off Charlotte Harbor, FL. I use 93, but I saw the price as I passed the pumps.
