You could be pumping your own petrol soon

It's already happening over the border in the UAE, and now one of Oman’s leading fuel suppliers says that drivers should pay an extra rial if an attendant pumps fuel into your car.

Mahmoud Al Auwfi, the head of the CEO office of Al Maha Oil Company has said: "plans for the self-service or a small fee at the local petrol stations are already in the works.” He added that places for both options should be available “at each fuel station with a pump attendant to collect the money after filling.”

So, it's pretty clear - either pump your own fuel or be prepared to pay an extra rial for the service.
