I don't think issue is simply that they want people to pay attention while
fueling -- the actual wording (I looked this morning as I was getting gas)
says Cell Phones, Pagers, and Personal Electronic Devices could cause an
electrical discharge which could be dangerous.

So I wonder, too -- if it's an urban legend, why did the gas companies buy
into it and have posted signs for people not to use them?

Maybe the warning is there because people should not try to talk and fill
their tanks at the same time.
