Germs and viruses love gas pumps. They’re cool, damp and made of metal and hard plastic, If we don’t want to transfer whatever was left on them by the last 200 coughing and sneezing customers to our steering wheel and then our face, we should be extra vigilant there.

Wear a disposable glove if you have one, then deposit it in the trash ‘before‘ re-entering your vehicle. A plastic shopping bag might be your best second choice. We’re all in this together. Spread the word and let’s win this war.
