Yeah, the value of operator is a string and there might exist some
person or brand/company call Independent.
There will be always an operator so operator=independent does not work

We need an additional tag for independent fuel stations. This tag is
useful for several shops aswell.
Sorry, my English is AE influenced and not my mother tong, so I have
some difficulties to find some proper words.
