The goal when going to the gas station is to get in and out of there quickly while touching as few things as possible, because GERMS. Sometimes there are certain things that get in our way or make going to the gas station a less than fun experience.

Here's what I think we need to stop doing:

Don't Park Your Car At The Pump 

Look, if you need to get gas, by all means park you car there and go in and pay if you need to, that's totally fine. However, if you're parking your car in front of a pump while you go shop around the convenience store when other people want and need to use it, that's not cool.

Why Though?

I've seen this happen so many times, and it really blows my mind. Nine times out of ten there's plenty of parking spaces on the side of the building, so why block a pump you don't plan to use.

Another Thing:

Since we're on a roll here, another thing that is really rude that people do, is clean their cars out at the trash cans by the pump. We all know they're only meant for one or two things in, but some of us take it a little too far and unload everything. I feel bad for the employees who have to clean out those trash cans.

Here's The Point

So, the point I'm trying to make here is to just be considerate of others, extend a little courtesy, and do what you're supposed to do.

That's just my opinion. Is there anything that really bugs you that people do at the gas station? Send us a message and let us know.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
