Gas woes

May I add my voice to the unfortunate potential suspension of full service at gas stations?

May I add my voice to the unfortunate potential suspension of full service at gas stations? Driving the car is no problem to me. In fact a couple of weeks ago, I passed the required doctors’ physical exam with flying colours. But, thanks to arthritis and other limitations, I can no longer handle the art of filling my tank and getting into the store to pay for the gas.

Why should handicapped people be discriminated against? We have enough problems without adding to them.

Several cities in B.C., including Richmond, have banned self-service.

If those who call the shots in this case could limit themselves once or twice to refueling their cars as we must do, they wouldn’t need to think twice about making such a drastic and problematic change.
