    now they expect you to watch ads on a tv screen while pumping gas. That is a stupid design when you should be paying attention to Everything. Are they hoping we get robbed or pump in too much gas?

    or better yet..just stop carrying a purse and use pants with pockets…with my luck I would lock myself out of the car…oh wait…you can’t lock yourself out of a Honda Element…

    I am locking my car as I exit to pump fuel. I will secure my credit card after paying at the pump by placing it in my pocket.

    The entire time I am at a station, I am looking around for any unusual activity.

    Besides I stop at a more safer place than here.

    Key West Inn is next door to this station.

    A good rule of thumb when you are at a gas station filling up is to take the keys out of the ignition and lock the doors, and don’t leave your purse in plain view or your wallet in the console.
