WISTV Complaint - Gas

Review by Gascomplaint on 2007-05-13
LEX., SOUTH CAROLINA -- Please DO NOT keep telling us how the prices are on different gas stations. The reason... Everybody runs out and changes their prices. SO... the gas prices go up, up, up. They don't need ANY more help. I think it is just greed!!!!! I know of one station that had his gas at $2.71 when ya'll announced others at $2.89. You can tell us where the cheaper ones are but not mentioning the higher prices. Agree??? America will pay for this greedy spirit.

Prices are set by the oil companies using some sort of zone system. The formula is known only to them. In my area prices can vary by as much as 20 cents a gallon in 2 miles. I avoid those non-brand or off brand stations because they sell the lowest quality gasoline.

Gasoline is gasoline. It's all intermingled in the pipelines and usually in the storage tanks. What makes it Chevron vs Shell is the "additive package" they put in the tanker truck when they fill it with gasoline. Many studies have shown it's all basically the same - buy based on price.

That's what I meant about lowest quality. Most of the off brands don't have the additives.
