To give customers more for their money, gas stations look to slow pump speeds by half

Nashville, TN- According to reports, many gas stations across the U.S. are planning to slow their pump speeds down by half to help customers feel like they are getting more for their money.

"It used to take me about three minutes to fill my tank. Now, I'm paying more, but I'm also getting six to eight minutes of pump time. So, I'm definitely getting more bang for my buck," said one customer we interviewed.

A Gas Station Association of America (GSAA) representative told reporters that they are testing the slower speeds in select markets before rolling it out nationwide this summer. If the program is successful and fuel prices continue to rise, they may cut flow rates even further to give customers even more time to enjoy their fueling experience.
