A few weeks ago I was driving up to Washington from California.
I needed gas near Roseburg.
So I pull off the freeway and pass the chevron which advertised gas at $4.69 and go to the Arco since Arco is cheaper.
I notice that there was no price advertised and asked for a fill up.
You can’t pump your own gas in Oregon but it’s normally way cheaper because of the lack of taxes.
A couple seconds later I asked what the price was and the pump jockey said it’s right there and points to the fine print 6 feet away from me.
I get closer to read it and it says $6.69 per gallon for regular.
I ask if that was the real price and the dude sheepishly says yes.
I firmly say stop right now.
That place way trying to rip me off.
I figured if I pass the first major brand at the exit (that chevron) and go a hundred yards to the Arco it would be cheaper.
With my 12 gallon tank I just saved $24 that place tried to shyst me out of.
I had been driving on the road for about 8-9 hours and this sure woke me up.
