Gas station yesterday and today

Where are these men of Texaco today? In the 60ies and 70ies service was a key word at gas stations. The friendly men cleaned your screen, looked for your engine oil and of course filled the tank. Today? Well you do it all yourself, if you actually can do it. More and more gas stations become little shops and people get their bread or meat there, or just beer, mineral water, chocolate or ice cream. And while they shop you can't get to your petrol and you wait and wait and wait. I really wonder whether this is the purpose of a gas station and dream about the good old times as visualized in this commercial from the 50ies.
