I don't know about Pennsylvania, but here in Oklahoma I am encountering an increasing number of pumps with defective shut-offs, so that they "click" and shut off for no reason. An employee as such a station confessed that they just aren't maintaining their pumps properly to save money. I've identified some local stations with pumps that shut off properly, and try to patronize them. I don't know why gasoline retailers need to save money after that $4 per gallon stuff a few months ago, but apparently some think they do!
So, poorly maintained pumps could be part of the problem.
