Gas Station Signs Go Electronic

Technology is now changing the way some gas stations in Amarillo and others across the country advertise their prices. Some gas stations are now switching to electronic signs. 

NewsChannel 10's Jenifer Best spoke with a Toot'n Totum official who says the electronic signs are safer for their employees. Now, they can change the gas prices with a push of a button on a remote inside the store instead of going outside and dealing with the big plastic numbers we are all used to seeing.

It also allows them to change prices immediately.

David Hudson, Special Projects Manager for Toot'n Totum says the electronic signs allow them to match their competition and make good business decisions.  He also says you will not pay anymore or less at the pump this way, compared to the old way which uses plastic numbers. 

Right now Toot'n Totum has about eight electronic signs around the city with plans to add more in the future. Each sign costs anywhere from $4,000 to $20,000.
