This is true in my area also. Guess how much gas you will need, pay the clerk, go out and pump gas that has been set to stop at the amount you gave the clerk, go back in to get change if needed, then drive off.
I do miss the days when someone pumped the gas for you plus washed your windshields and checked your oil while waiting for the tank to fill.
