Do you have those TV's / monitors at the gas pump that run those annoying commercials for what is sold inside at the convenience store?

Yea we have them. I don't pay attention to them other than to shake my head that the gas pump has a nicer TV than I do. But at these prices that makes sense.

No but the audio version is just as bad. They make money in the store not at the pump. Hard to believe but true. Gas is just to entice us.

I ignore them; they are such a pain! I would watch them if you got a 10c savings per gallon; but that's never going to happen.

I wouldn't call it a TV, but the LCD screen will promo something inside the store before I make my selection on the pump. I have never encountered one with audio that needed to be muted.

I see nothing wrong with them. Doesn't mean that I'am going to buy anything but the gas. If they want to entertain me while I pump gas, that's fine with me.

One station here, a Phillips 66, has TVs at the pump. They seem to run a lot of ads for credit cards.
