Last Thursday I travelled to Michigan on business. During my trip I stopped a couple of times for gas. At each gas station the pumps had a “Pay Before Pumping” sign on it and each time I was planning on filling the car up. Now maybe some of my American readers can tell me if all gas stations are like this (I only stopped at ones directly off of the interstates) and if so why are they like that? Are there a lot of gas crimes in the States?
Other than that my trip was rather uneventful. I spent most of the day driving and the a couple of hours at the clients site. No problems at the border – though I didn’t buy anything in the states (other than lunch and gas) so they wouldn’t have found anything.
