really? I had the guy show me. OMG! I took a picture. here.
After looking on line I found out this is ILLEGAL!
Michigan House Bill 5596
"The new Michigan law requires gas station owners to post conditions, such as the need to purchase a car wash or use cash, immediately next to the sale price. The difference here is that the conditions must be in the same lettering and at least half the font size of the sale price. [continued below]....
Clearly this one is NOT.
Also... most gas price signs have a price for REGULAR, then one for PREMIUM and sometimes DIESEL.
Apparently this station does not sell premium? I never even noticed regular is on there twice. Let alone that micro type about the "car wash."
So they got me. They can only get me once. I pass this station all the time too. So they made about 40.00 off of me. Never again! In fact I think I'll just drive by all BP stations from now on.
Surely BP is aware when they pay to have a huge sign made what will be on it!
This is no accident.
