    This is not true for all gas stations. I own a shell gas station in Stamford CT and I clean my pump handles every week with a antibacterial spray.

    I believe gas stations would clean their nozzles regularly - the handles would get gas on them which is a hazard, it would need to be cleaned off from time to time.

    A person is exposed to millions of germs everyday, not just at the gas station.

    Isn't gas a disinfectant, like alcohol? It should kill any germs it comes in contact with.

    @David, you generally don't spill gas on the handle of the pump.

    As for it being a disinfectant, I'll take my chances with alcohol.
