Sometimes you will have gas nozzles that refuse to pump in any gas regardless of how much gas is currently in the tank and how slowly you pull the trigger on the nozzle.
If you can draw nozzle out a hair or move it closer to one side of the fill tube and the gas flows, then it is more likely an air pocket in the tank. Another method is to fill up in the early morning or late evening to take advantage of the cooler temps - get more gas for your money that way too (gasoline has a relatively high coefficient of volumetric expansion).

same thing happened to me, I never had problems with them until recently. they recently set the pump shutoff more sensitive, probably because of a previous overspill which made them want to set it more sensitive to prevent that further.
See, that also makes me wonder. The check engine light is not on. And I can't understand why I would have to pump gas differently at stations that have always been fine in the past. I'm in the Austin area.
