Pump it up

With all the survalence cameras on the market and their low cost, I think that gas stations should just install them and stop having us get out of our cars walk inside prepay for gas then go back in and get our change. I go to Citgo durring daytime hours so I don't have to prepay. If you people would just stop going to prepay gas stations then they'll put cameras up and we won't have to go through all that bull$hit. If it's frezing cold outside I don't feel like making all those trips. If anyone knows any other stations that are not prepay please list them. Boycott the ones that are prepay. Force them into stopping this prepay hassle.

How about learning a little bit about your vehicle, so you can accurately determine how much gas it will take to fill it. That would cut down on those horrible second trips to get your change.
Better yet, just hit the assistance button and let someone else do everything for you.

Take your idea and stick it in your stink hole. The next thing they will have us doing is putting down a deposit before we enter a store just to put a stop to shop lifting. Get with the program or rebel and boycott.

i thought it was going to be another post on getting a massage...lmao!...turn on the news they are talking about the feds taxing gas another 15 cents on the gallon. Gomart lets you pump your gas then pay. Citgo is communist owned and when you buy the gas there a portion of the money goes to the commies in Venezuela.
shut up already

You wish that they put more cameras up! That is crazy! We can't go anywhere as it is with out being on the big brother cam. After the government gets through taxing gas yet again (it's coming) this country is done for, we already pay like 45 cents a gallon on tax for gas just for living in WV add the 15 and that's 65 cents a gallon, where all screwed.

Ok so far we have the Fairlea Citgo and the Lewisburg GoMart. Anymore? Just spead the word to boycott the gas stations that make you prepay. If we the consumers stick together and stand up against this policy, we will put an end to prepay before pumping. Let's make a difference in this area or make GoMart and Citgo the only ones selling gas in the area. Make a change !

well if the low life deadbeats wouldnt steal gas you wouldnt have to prepay most gas stations make the cashier pay for their drive offs and trust me they dont make enough money to have to pay for some worthless thiefs gas and that is why you have to prepay.and yes they have cameras but when you call the law for the gas drive offs 99% of the time they do not catch them and half the time the law doesnt even look for them

Most owners of gas stations make the employees pay for the gas runoffs to discourage them from letting family get gas for free. I know a lady that has worked at pretty much all the stations around here and has been fired for stealing at all of them. Gives some hard luck story so they don't prosecute her.

Most gas stations are paying minimum wage so they can afford security cameras at the pumps. If you still go to prepay stations prepay at the drive through window so they can get a taste of the cold that you have to go through. Then drive back through to get your change. Or you can just continue like all the other ants on the planet and just follow along. Make the change. We all are not gas thieves so why be treated like one.

you could just use your debit or credit card if you have one and pay at the pump problem solved
yep

debit cards are limited to $50 at most stations I've seen around here and when you use it they hit the card for more than $50 to make sure the money is there. Make sure you have enough in the account to cover that. They give it back to you but if there's not enough you can be overdrawn.

Does anyone remember when you drove up to the gas pumps and there was someone that pumped your gas, checked your oil and tire pressure and then cleaned your window?You paid them and you didn't even have to get out of your car. Now you do it all and more. Don't go to prepay gas stations. Only all of us together can make this change.

Do you really think that go mart has water in their gas? All the gas comes from a distribution center east of Roanoke. It's all the same gas. If there was any water in the trucks tank it would set on the bottom so since it is pumped from the bottom of the truck tank then the first place that gets gas from the truck gets the water. Water in gas is a thing of the past anyway. There are too many saftey features. I had a relative that worked at a gas station and I got to know the other employees, this has been good while back, but all I had to do was pull up to a pump, wave and start pumping. I not lazy but I don't need to prepay for gas just because they have drive offs. I will continue to get gas where ever you don't have to prepay. I encourage everyone else to do the same and take a stand.
