With the onslaught of nasty weather on the horizon, Tom Paschane wants to remind folks that his gas station is going full service for the winter. This marks the third year that Paschane’s Honeysuckle Chevron in Hayden has hired Mike Trautvetter as an attendant to fill gas tanks for the season. “Mike is very passionate about the job and I am lucky to have him back,” Paschane said, adding Trautvetter has a tendency to put a smile on his customers’ faces. Paschane said he started the service in mid-November once the weather started to change. Even though this is Paschane's third year offering the service, many of his customers are surprised when Trautvetter greets them as they pull up/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Would you pay a little extra per gallon for full service at local gas stations?
