Are They Scamming Us?
Hi it’s Leslie, and I use a couple of different gas apps to find the cheapest price, but I have noticed more and more that when I get to the pump, the price is significantly higher than what it says on the app.
I noticed on at least one of these apps that anyone can change the price, and it has happened so often lately, that I am now suspecting station owners and managers of falsely lowering the prices to draw people in.
I know I have had the experience of getting to the station and being so frustrated and tired that I’ll buy the gas anyway, so I wonder if that’s what they are counting on. But I will always go into the app to change the price, to make sure it doesn’t happen to someone else.
I’ve noticed it at so many stations, that I’m really, really suspicious. Have you also noticed this? Have you done anything about it? IS there anything we can do about it?
Let me know in the Facebook comments.
