Spending is estimated to advance another 7.1% in 2018 and will expand to $1.7 trillion total by 2022.
In our business, we visit a gas station at the end of every shift we work. It seems as safe as visiting McDonalds or any other retail business. It is not. By the very nature of the main product, gas, it is a dangerous place. But fuel isn't the only danger at the pumps.
In this year alone, three people have been seriously injured or killed while pumping gas. In all cases, an errant driver careened from the adjacent roads into the gas pumps. The probable cause in the death or injury was from not paying attention to the surrounding areas because we get in a comfort zone at a familiar place or performing a familiar activity and we let our guard down.
While there’s an urban legend that using a cell phone while pumping gas can cause vapors to ignite, in reality this has never happened anywhere in the world, according to the FCC. However, we are all prone to make cell calls while pumping gas because it might be our first opportunity to use our phone in hours. Pay attention while you are on the phone to panhandlers or robbers who might attempt to rob you while your guard is down.
Beware of who is around you and what they are doing. A person smoking a cigarette while pumping gas at the next island should be of concern to you. People seen loitering in front of the store for no apparent reason should concern you. Be alert, stay alive.
