Wish gas was that price here
Gas here is $1.187/Litre or roughly $3.44.9/US Gallon with no discount for using cash

Wow, and I thought we had it bad!
And up here in the mountains of British Columbia we are $1.269/L or $4.82/gal ($4.02/gal US).

the Us has some of the lowest gas prices on the planet, , as a comparison in Paris today it is 6.78 USD pre US gallon (1.55 euro per liter, i don't feel so bad when i see 1.13 cad now about .75 euro so less than half the price )

This one really struck me, as I've never seen someone pumping gas sitting down... How big is that vehicle's gas-tank??
The guy is lazy.

The fuel tank in a car like that would likely be 12 to 14 gallons. Takes about 2 minutes to fill when near empty.

What I want to know is why the guy needs a safety harness usually worn by workers who are working at elevated heights, like phone or electric utility workers, of sign repair guys.

With the amount of skyscraper construction in the vicinity (Long Island City and Roosevelt Island), and even some building construction around 21st Street (where shot is taken in LIC), I can only presume he was about to check in for work. Footwear may confirm the theory...

Or maybe "he" was high, needing thus to seat down with the proper safety apparel for elevation

That adds up Ed.

But.

Working 30 years as a truck mechanic at an electric utility I wore a similar harness thousands of times. The linemen also wore harnesses like that.

But very rarely did anyone wear them all the time. Once it is on, movement becomes quite limited. Sitting down can cause a man's voice to raise an octave or two (for reasons we can all understand, right? ) when the leg straps pull up tight. Plus, sitting down will let one know where every buckle is, including the lanyard that connects to the ring at the middle of the back, again, quite uncomfortable.
