Is that what all the freaking out has been about?
I’ve pumped my own gas just about every time I went to NY, and it’s uncommon to find a place that does it for you up here.

It’s been probably 25 years since the last time I stopped into a full-service station, and to be honest I don’t know of any that exist anymore.

At the time I had about a 1.5 hour commute and I remember that I found it kinda nice to be able to pull in after a long day at work and let someone else pump the gas. Hell, I was only 24 or 25 then... NOW I’d REALLY appreciate it if I could find one!
