Hi! I know you probably don't need the boost from my lowly site, but I wanted you to know that I gave you an award and linked to you! I love your site!
Actually, this is a perfectly acceptable use of quotations. The terms "drive-off" and "pre-pay" are not words found in the dictionary.
The first set of quotes is actually kind of nice, since "a drive-off" is sort of jargon.But the second one isn't necessary (bcs although "pre-pay" is not in the dictionary, the prefix "pre" is, which means it can be added with impunity to almost any word--and usu. you don't need a hyphen).
Yeah, I'm with nathan on this; I think this is one rare example of quotes being used correctly.
A drive-off is when someone pumps "gasoline" and then drives off without paying. It's a real problem in "some" areas.I do find it necessary to point out the misuse of the word "pre-pay". It should say "Must pay before pumping gas" or "Must pre-pay when purchasing gas", not "Must pre-pay before pumping gas" because obviously you can't pre-pay AFTER you pump the gas.
