Last time I called the Michigan AG on gas price gouging, I was given sympathy “Oh, I know its terrible, isn’t it?”, I had accurate information, the station address, and NOTHING WAS DONE. No questions asked, no investigation, no taking of my name and information, no taking of the other information I had as well.
Will the State of Michigan to do something about this station that a GasBuddy took a photo of on Sept. 11 in Lansing? The station turned off their sign once camera crews arrived, but here it is. The GasBuddy managed to get a photo of it. Now- let me guess. The State says they’re interesting in prosecuting stations that gouge, but they’ll likely say I had to fill up with the ultra expensive gas to prove it. Why waste my money and support the morons that did this? Shouldn’t a photo be enough to prosecute?
Lets see if any local media stations will pick up on this ridiculous station’s attempt to gouge. If you can’t see the image well enough, the price for regular is $6.55. The station claims a malfunction, but I don’t see how you can screw this one up. Its not like they meant $3.55, that would be too cheap. $4.55 would be gouging as well… so $6.55?
OK, State of Michigan- you advertise that you’ll protect the consumer and prosecute stations that gouge, so here you are. If anyone has a receipt showing purchase of fuel in the West Michigan/Lansing area on Sept. 11-13 that is over $5 gallon, I will personally give you $50 for it’s use.
