Why would anyone leave their car running while filling up their gas tank?

So I go to fill up today at a gas station. It's about 8:00AM, 75 degrees here in LA, beautiful weather. Some schmuck comes pulling in next to the gas pump next to me and proceeds to completely fill his gas tank while leaving his car running. WHY?? It's not like it was a hot day today. He mostly sat in his car the whole time listening to his radio and I didn't even think to confront him on why he was doing this because, it's LA you know, you never know who's packing heat here. lol Anyway, it got me thinking, why would anyone do this? Believe me, I'm not some kind of hippy tree hugger, but come on, it's a total waste of natural resources to do something like this. Stupid. Also, isn't there some kind of safety hazard with this too?
