Old school gas station

I recently stopped to get gas at one of the few old school gas stations left (though I suppose they’re still somewhat common in rural areas). The pumps didn’t have digital counters, let alone credit card readers. I had to pull a handle on the side in order to start the pump (twice, actually, “because it’s old” one of the employees told me). And even the attached convenience store was old school. Old wood flooring that looked to be from at least 60 years ago and poor lightning. After getting used to have TV screens blaring the news and ads at my gas pump, this taste of yesterday was actually kind of refreshing.

When was the last time you used one of these old pumps?
