First self service gas station to open in October

Date Posted: 1998-09-18

Idemitsu Gasoline Co. has decided to open a self service gas station in Nishihara on Oct. 1. It be the first of its kind in Okinawa. Until April, self service gas stations were no allowed to operate because of the regulations in the Fire Prevention Law. The law was revised from April, and self service gas pumps became legal.

According Tamaki Matsuoka, a section chief at Idemitsu Co., Okinawa Branch, the company has not yet decided the price of the gasoline at the self service gas station. But, he says that "Naturally, the price will be lower than at a regular gasoline station."

Another novelty feature of the facility will be that it also includes a convenience store. Since the number of the staff at the gas station will be smaller than at a regular gas stand, the company expects the main benefit of the self service gas station will be reduced expenses which can be passed to customers in the form of cheaper gas prices while at the same time the profit margin for the company will improve.
