Gas Station Woes


Originally uploaded by tbridge.

Imagine my shock and horror this morning to pull into my local gas station, running on fumes, and run into this sticker. Apparently, every pump in the station was given a failing rating from the Virginia Department of Agriculture for one reason or another. Perhaps it’s related to the crackdown on gas storage temperatures that’s going on in the greater DC area? Who knows.

I filled up, but because I had to, but I certainly wondered what my station had done to so badly tick off the state.

    It may have been screwing buyers by charging you for a gallon while giving you less than a gallon. This happens a lot, and they seem to get that “malfunction” a lot more than often than a malfunction that would give you extra gas for your buck.

    Sometimes stations advertise one price and charge something higher. I have seen that more than once, but that likely wouldn’t cause a rejected pump certification.
