Neither Scenario Bodes Well

There are only two scenarios I can imagine for how this notice came into being.  Either the public was confused by both "Please Prepay" and "Please Pay in Advance" or someone at the oil company with enough authority to decide the wording on the gas pump signs thought this was a perfectly cromulent use of the language.

  1. I guess you need to pay for the gas you will get next time this time.

  2. Still a bit confusing. How about "Please Prepray First in Advance"?
