WELL I HAVE BEEN A RESIDENT IN COVINGTON FOR OVER 45 YEARS, HAVE LIVED ON 9TH FOR OVER 30, I FIND IT ALITTLE DISHEARTING THAT AS NEIGHBORS WE BLAME THE OWNERS FOR THE CONDUCT OF THE OTHERS. I SAY THIS BECAUSE I HAVE SPOKE WITH THE OWNER, I KNOW HE CARES FOR THE COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE, AND ALSO KNOW HE AND HIS EMPLOYEES DISCOURAGE THOSE WHO HANG OUT ON THE CORNER, BUT THEY ARE NOT THE POLICE. NOW I DONT SHOP THERE ALOT BUT I DO GO IN TO GET FEW THINGS NOW AND THEN, BUT I KNOW I CAN GO ANYWHERE WHEN I NEED THINGS, NOT EVERYONE CAN DO THAT, IF I THOUGHT FOR ONE MOMENT THE OWNER OR HIS PEOPLE PROMOTED IN ANYWAY THAT IT WAS OK FOR PEOPLE TO JUST HANG OUT AND DO WHATEVER IT IS THEY DO, THEN I WOULD BE AGAINST THAT OWNER, BUT I KNOW HE DOESNT, I DO KNOW HE HAS HIRED LOCAL PEOPLE TO WORK THERE AND IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE COMMUNITY. SO TO SAY THAT OWNER THINKS HE DOESNT HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO THE COMMUNITY, THEN I KNOW YOU HAVENT TALKED TO HIM, OR YOU WOULD RETRACT THAT STATEMENT.AND JUST SO FOR THOSE WHO MIGHT READ THIS, I HAVE NO CONNECTION WITH THIS STORE OWNER, OTHER THEN MEETING HIM NOW AND THEN AND GETTING TO KNOW HIM. DONT BLAME ANY BUSSINESS OWNER WHO IS TRYING TO BETTER COVINGTON BECAUSE YOU HAVE A DRUG OR CRIME PROBLEM IN YOUR TOWN, AND WE DO THATS FOR SURE, BUT OUR EFFORTS SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO CITY HALL AND THE POLICE AND OTHER GROUPS THAT CAN HELP IN THAT AREA,
Tips & Advices
Driver can find the cheapest gas prices by using an app to search for the lowest prices in their area.  Some apps such as Gas Guru take note of your location, and provide a list of gas stations nearby, along with the cost of gas currently being sold at each station.
There are things you can do to slightly improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Make sure your car's tires are properly inflated, and treat your engine to regular tune-ups. Check your engine's air filter, since a dirty air filter will compromise fuel economy.
Drivers must shut their engine off before pumping gas because it's illegal to fuel with the engine running, even though this law isn't always aggressively enforced. Pumping gas with the engine running can compromise your safety. When your car's engine is running, it's possible for its catalytic converters to generate heat that could ignite gasoline, and start a fire.
Even though many gas stations have warnings advising you not to use your cell phone while fueling, the chances of cell phones igniting a gasoline vapor fire are extremely remote. However, fires at the gas pump may be caused by static electricity discharge. For safe fueling, it's recommended that you turn off your car's engine and avoid smoking at the pump. Also, you should never re-enter your vehicle while refueling.
Many factors contribute to the lack of uniformity in gas prices. Retailers consider their tax responsibilities when setting gas prices. States place varying taxes on gasoline retailers, and a state with higher taxes will have higher gas prices than a state in which the taxes are lower. Also, if a gas station is located in an especially competitive area, a branded operator may receive wholesale discounts that allow the station to sell gas at a lower price. This is done by brands to keep their gas competitive in tight markets.
