Ever since my CC sent me a new card with chip, the gas station doesn't let me pay the gaz by swipping at the pump anymore but required me to get in & punch the code.

I didnt fully understood your post, but I hate it when people at Esso park their cars at the pump to go inside and lineup for Tim Hortons coffee. In some gas stations where there are very fewer pumps it makes it very annoying to wait till the guy comes out pulls up his car so that you can fill in.

Were those people paying their gas inside too? I won't move my car from the pump when I go in paying. I don't want the mixed up / confusion if the next customer starts pumping before my transaction is done.

I used to pay at the pump until my card got comprimised. I only ever used it at the gas station. Now I will go inside and pay cash.

I pay inside with a company Fleet card. They aren't accepted at the pumps.

I think the OP will find there are a number of reasons why people go inside, and not just because people pay with cash.

yo its 2011 time to get with the times. get a cc, pop it in, fill up and go. i dont wanna deal with all pumps being taken cuz people are lined up inside paying for gas. you may say they are buying lottery tickets or snacks. lottery is for stupid people, and everything at gas stations is overpriced/unhealthy so lay off the snacks. ***** about gas yet you're paying $2.99 for a 250g chip bag, lol. anyway ill be the guy who is at the station about 5 minutes less than most, cuz i value my time and $

I agree with OP whole-heartedly. People driving their mid-size sedan do not have 100L tanks, they're just dumb and paranoid.
