Thomasville - For the most part, full-service gas stations are a thing of the past. If you want someone to check the oil or brake fluid, you often have to take your vehicle to a mechanic. But one local gas station attendant will take care of those things for you when you fill up.

"Regular unleaded?" asks Bill Reynolds as a customer pulls up at Golden Oil Company in Thomasville. For Reynolds, serving his customers isn't just a job, "Let me get my customer," he says, it's the way things should be.

Reynolds says, "I think everybody should be full service. Everybody would get their cars checked regularly. Most people don't even check their oil."

Very few full-service stations exist today, and the ones that do, typically charge extra for the services offered. Here, you'll pay the same amount as if you pumped the gas yourself, because they believe all customers should be served without having to pay extra for it.

And because of that extra attention, Reynolds stays very busy. "We have our regulars. They're here every time they need gas," he says. And from the looks of things, they'll continue to come back.

Bill Reynolds has been working for Golden Oil Company for about a year. He retired from the city of Thomasville where he worked as a lineman. He says he went back to work, because he likes to stay busy.
