Full Service Gas Station

We are visiting my youngest daughter in New Prague, Minnesota - and after arriving I needed to put gas in the car. My daugherer steered us to a "Full Service" station. No kidding, FULL SERVICE. We pulled in and a nice young man came out to the car, asked what we needed, took my credit card to swipe it in the pump and he filled the tank. This is a service I thought had long disappeared, but in a small town in Minnesota, it is alive and well. If you're ever in New Prague stop by by the BP Gas Station on Main Street. Did it cost extra? Nope - the price was the same as advertised at the Shell and Holiday stations.

Loved it - I got to sit in the car and stay warm. Rumor has it that they'll also wash your window if it needs it.
