Bob Zimmer,

I used to wonder why their prices weren't higher. And why our mpg blew. ;-) Yep, as Lobo suggested, maybe a call to Weights & Measures is in order.

Reminds me of an TV *investigation* (Dateline/Primetime/20-20/???) of a chain of rip-off gas stations in LA. If I'm not mistaken, the scam involved programming the pumps to pump accurately for whole gallons, e.g., 5 gal containers that Weights & Measures officials typically use, and possibly even $ amounts, e.g., $10; but, underpump everything else. Clever, IMO.
