"Petrol stations can no longer afford to fill up cars whose tanks take 20 gallons." Huh? "Excuse me, sir, your car's gas tank is too big. I simply can't afford to sell the commodity my store offers in such huge quantities. Selling all this gas is bankrupting me. In fact (shouts to everyone in the line), could we all PLEASE show some consideration and buy a little bit less gas! I've got a family to feed!"
