Have You Ever Seen Non-Pull-Through Gas Pumps Like These?
Pumping gas is one of those necessary evils that every adult has to go through. It’s something you do so often that you might not really think about the process anymore. You just find an open stall, pull up, and get your gas.
What if you were to come up to a gas station that looked completely different from what you’re used to? Most everyone is used to the gas pumps that you can pull into from any side, making it easy to pull up to any pump facing the right or left side to fill up your car. Apparently, not all pumps are made equal.
I came across a video on TikTok showing a version of gas pumps that I had never seen before. Rather than the pumps being placed away from the convenience store so you can enter the pump from either side, these pumps were placed right up against the storefront. According to some of the comments on the video, this gas station is located in Winter Garden, Florida.
I’m not sure what the reason is for setting up the pumps like this, but I kinda like it. It gives more of a comfy vibe and makes it easier to head into the store while your tank is filling. Some commenters did express some concerns about customers that like to smoke outside of the convenience store, and how that could be hazardous here. I agree with that, but I also think it just takes a little bit of common sense to stand somewhere else to smoke, so I think most people would be fine.
I don’t know if this style of gas station will spread to many other places, but I would definitely be interested to see one come to Lubbock or another part of Texas.
