With the gasoline crisis, many motorists feel like they are getting hosed at the gas pump, but a Johnson City man says he has proof.
Ralph Lewis works in sales, so he drives quite a bit. Lewis said he stopped to get gas on Friday at the 7 Star Stop at 1107 West Market Street in Johnson City. Lewis says he paid a whopping $5.49 per gallon.
Lewis was upset about having to pay that much for gas, but said he needed it. Lewis was sent over the edge when he saw a newspaper article in the Johnson City Press that has employees of the 7 Star Stop in Johnson City claiming they had that price on their sign, but never really charged customers $5.49 per gallon. Employees say there was a glitch in the sign.
Lewis said, “It wasn’t the idea of paying that much, but it was the idea that they told the press that they weren’t charging that much.”
Lewis claims to have a receipt from the gas station that states he did pay $5.49 for a gallon of gasoline.
Lewis said the gas station is now one of many stations under investigation for price gouging.
