“Do you shake the gas pump handle when you’re done, or are you rich?”

"Do you shake the gas pump handle when you’re done, or are you rich?” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. Gas can be expensive, and many people try to get every drop they pay for. Authorship of the saying is uncertain.

“Do you shake the gasoline pump once you’re done to get more gas or are you rich?” was posted on Twitter by Tamara on May 26, 2020. “do you shake the last drops of gas out the pump too or are you rich?” was posted on Twitter by zoe papi on June 29, 2020. “Do you shake the gas dispenser until you get every last drop you pay for, or are you rich?” was posted on Twitter by A Kū`ē Kīng on July 28, 2020.
