The price of a gallon of gasoline has gone up over 45% in your area since the date of your Ripoff Report. If you multiply 45% x $2.59 you will get $1.16, right?

Now add the $1.16 to $2.59 and you get $3.75, correct? Gasoline is a little over $3.75 a gallon in Reading today, according to information available on the web. Have a nice day.

Where do they come from?

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (USA)

  I often wonder how people this dim manage to successfully logon to a website?  Hey genius, this post is almost 3 years old and if you bothered to read any of the follow ups, you might have caught on that the gas pump was correct and the original poster is a doofus.

If you 'Google' this- READING PENNSYLVANIA GAS PRICES, you can go to the related sites and see that gasoline is around $3.79 a gallon today in Reading, Pennsylvania. A gallon of gasoline in your area has gone up about $1.20 since the date of your Ripoff Report.

average station

AUTHOR: michaelhunt - (United States of America)

Average station has two or three 10,000 gallon tanks and if you do a little math you will see that its only off by a teaspoon then 30,000 teaspoons of pure profit and if 0.003 was like one or two cents it adds up and pisses me off quicktrip has been doing it for years thats all gas unaccounted for its like buying a 12 pack and clerk take a can out everytime soon the clerk could sell 12 packs that he made from shorting the customer next thing you know the sob is buying his own stores from profits and come time for inventory there would not be an overage cause the overage he got to sell and put it in his pocket

For some reason the second photo(that showed the price) is pushed way off to the side and unless someone else mentioned it I would never had seen it.  Of course this makes the OP's report even dumber as the proof as to the reason was right in front of them. 

Also I meant to say "So the pump was correct and there was no RipOff".

Are you Serious?

AUTHOR: Cody - (USA)

The way I see it, they owe you 0.003 gallons of gas.  Some simple math tells us that .003 times the $2.59 selling price means that they owe you $0.0077.

You got ripped off of $0.0077 and you shouldn't let them get away with it. You should assemble a team of lawyers and file multiple lawsuits, not just against the gas station, but also the gas pump manufacturer, the gasoline wholesaler, the gasoline delivery company, the oil refinery that made the gas, the oil tanker that brought the oil from the middle east, and the King of Saudi Arabia while your at it.

Honestly though, there are some people on this website with very serious problems. Your $0.0077 "rip-off" is comical.

does anybody live inside your brain?

AUTHOR: IamGood - (USA)

Yoo h*o, is anybody home in there?

The Gas price is 2.59 9/10 of a cent.  That is effectively 2.60 per gallon.  You only bought 2.59 worth of gas, not 2.59 9/10, which would have been paying for 1 gallon.

The actual price of the gas was 2.59 9/10, NOT 2.59 cents.

d**n, learn some math fool.

you got what you paid for

AUTHOR: Really? - (USA)

In your second picture it shows that the price per Gallon is 2.599 in our current money system they round up so your 1 gallon is actually 2.60. I bet if you give the gas station a penny you will get your 2 teaspoons worth of gas.

Look at your photo

AUTHOR: Susan - (USA)

Look at your photo, see the sticker that says the pump was last tested June 09?  See the toll free phone number on the sticker? 

Your entire complaint is about 0.003% of one gallon?  A few tablespoons. If you had pumped to exactly one gallon it would have still been $2.59.

How in the heck do you expect 0.003% of a gallon to be split? Do you understand basic math of rounding off?

I noticed..

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

One thing was missing from your report.  A picture of the price.  If you had you would have seen that the price was $2.599.  So $2.590 is $0.009 short of a gallon.  So the pump was correct and there is was RipOff.

Also, just be glad your gas is only $2.59.  How about paying $2.85-$2.99 (well $2.859-$2.999) a gallon.

this is not a ripoff

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

If you will notice, the price of the gas is not $2.59. It is $2.59 and 9/10. That nine tenths is the reason you were shorted 3/1000 of a gallon. All gas stations do this.
