Austrian gas stations - part 2

This gas station is in Graz, Austria's 3rd largest city, in the south of the country close to the Slovenian border. We were there for a Pastor's weekend last November. "Jet" is a discount brand here in Austria, of all the discount chains it is by far the nicest, cleanest around and: "Tadaaa" - you can pay at the pump! (with your PIN like at the ATM, but never the less - it accepts bank (debit) cards, and Visa, I think)
This is a big deal in Austria, because gas stations usually equate pubs usually equates you smell like you were in a pub smoking for an hour after you went in there for five minutes and paid.
Brenda and I went to this gas station to buy some whipped cream - but they didn't have any. Don't ask what the whipped cream was for.
"Jet", btw, is a brand of the Conoco group, so having lived in Tulsa for 10 years, this makes yet another reason to buy gas there...

Oh the things we take for granted here in the USA :)

Fun to read about your walk down memory lane.
