Those responsible for selling gasoline aren’t so sure possible new legislation will cure the incidence of gas and dash.
Ken Estabrooks, who manages the Co-op Gas Bar in Amherst said motorists would have to come into the store and guess how much gas it’s going to take to fill up their vehicle.
“What if they go over? It creates another set of problems,” he said.
Last week, NDP MLA Charlie Parker suggested consumers should have to pay before they pump. Parker suggested legislation would protect retail workers and help retailers, some of whom are losing hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars because of motorists who gas up their vehicles and then drive away without paying.
