BP Gas Station Cheaters! Warren Michigan

July 22nd - I hate cheaters!

The BP gas station on the SW corner of Ten & Hoover (I believe the address is correct, but am absolutely sure of location) in Warren, MI, uses misleading advertising.

Today the gas station posted regular gas $2.26 per gallon on the huge billboard facing both Ten Mile and Hoover Rd.; the pump, however, stated $2.38 for regular gas (and a lot of peole don't look too closely at pumps after reading big billboards, so customers could get ripped off).

That's a 12 cents difference per gallon, which could add up, especially to those on a low income budget; the area, itself, I imagine is in an area where many people who are on low incomes live.

I went inside to ask the attendent, and he said the lower price was only with a car wash, and then asked if I wanted a car wash (I said no)!

I saw no signs anywhere in the vacinity of the gas pumps or on the billboard about cheaper prices being only good with a car wash (unless the signs are so well hidden no one can read them). This is misleading.

Additionally, it rips off the gas station across the street (with $2.33 on their billboard), because people will gladly go for the "cheaper" BP gas (due to the very misleading sign) and it's way too hard to cross over the other side of the street, once there, because of traffic.

When I told the BP attendent to only put in half the amount ($10.00 worth) of gasoline I originally told him and wanted half my money back, he acted rather perturbed. What nerve!

I wish I would have went to the station across the street.

From now on, I will always report such rip-offs, and not only rip-offs at gas stations!

AUTHOR: Ashley - (U.S.A.)

but around here, the BP stations I see have a sign right below the price that says (with car wash) in small print. I'm sure it was there somewhere.

Unfortunately what they do is legal. The price at the pump is the only one that has to be correct.
