I see the occasional stain at a gas station that might be spilled 
gasoline, but it tends to be a few drops.  I have occasionally had the 
filler hose drip a drop or two as I am replacing it on the pump.  The 
only time I have ever encountered a large-scale spill was the time, 
years ago, that someone had left the hose handle in the latched-open 
position, so that it started spewing gasoline as soon as I flipped up 
the lever to select the fuel type.
