Was there anything else noteworthy about your fuel island experience?:

Of the fuel bays at this facility, one was blocked off with a trash barrel when we came through. At least one could see from a distance that this bay was unavailable.

Additional comments::

I was utterly amazed that three vehicles cut between my truck and the truck ahead of me in the fuel bay while I was waiting to get fuel at this location. Two of these vehicles were articulated (combination truck and trailer) which forced me to back up to avoid being hit. Watch out for this kind of movement in this facility.
