is this kind of BS or no?

new gas station just opened up by my house. i hadnt been there yet but i noticed the gas price was lower than anywhere else. so i decide to go there on lunch to fill up incase it goes up AGAIN. price was 4.14 for 93oct.

so im standing there pumping gas and notice that on the pump it says 4.19 for 93oct. im like WTF.

THEN i notice a small little sign that says to save an extra $.05 per gallon you must go inside and pay....but it has to be before you start pumping. aint that some shit?

there is a big sign that grabs your attn that says save $.05 per gallon if you get a wash. i did not want a wash so i continued on. then the other sign is tiny. i think thats fuggin CRAP to advertise on the display one price and then make you have to jump through hoops to get it...and most people prolly miss the small sign on the pump.

Was this one pre-pay? I think all the gas stations I've been to lately are all pre-pay anyways.

If it was, that doesn't make any sense...but they're probably figuring if you come in, you'll end up buying a pop or candy bar or sumthin.

yeah theyre all prepay. but i pay at the pump. if the pay at the pump doesnt work then i leave.

but yeah thats exactly what i was thinking...they want you to come in and check out the new place and buy something.

if thats the case id have a sign that has some other deal going on inside....cuz i was about half way done pumping by the time i noticed this crap and now im pissed and prolly wont go inside there for a very long time.

Gotta love the art of deception

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Probably have to pay cash to get the $0.05 discount. I know a lot of stations that give a little discount for paying cash b/c they don't get wacked with the fee from the credit card company

Is it Delta Sonic? If so, they have been doing that for YEARS. It's 5 cents off per gallon with a car wash purchase.

its not delta sonic. and yes i understand the carwash thing gets you $.05 off each gallon but it is displayed on their sign with or without wash purchase. this has nothing to do with a carwash purchase. the displayed sign says a certain amount but when you get to the pump their is a hand written small sign taped to the pump that says to get the extra $.05 off you have to go inside to pay first.

it didnt say it had to be cash so idk if that was the case.

Ahh ok. Yah, the Delta Sonic signs have the full price on them I believe. There is a note for the discount elsewhere. Your experience does make it look like they are bordering on false advertising.
