IF PEOPLE JUST STOP GOING IN HIS STORE FOR ANYTHING AND PUT HIM OUT OF BUSINESS MAYBE HE WILL GO BACK FROM WHERE HE CAME FROM. IT'S GETTING WORSE AND WORSE IN PAULDING COUNTY. IT SHOULD BE PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE, NOT PEOPLE USEING PEOPLE FOR WHAT THEY CAN. PEOPLE DO NOT FORGET EVIL PEOPLE LIKE HIM. angry.gif

i don't wish him "back from where he came", i just hope that he gets what he deserves (ie less/no business) for taking advantage of people and trying to make a dishonest dollar. I don't think it has a lot to do with his nationality (maybe more so his upbringing), just that he was being greedy. I will not support that.

I will never stop at that station again. THat is GOUGING!!!! and he will be turned in. When he first opened......I remember a man getting gas the same time I did ( this has been a long while back) and he had a gallon gas can.........he went in the store to tell the man that his pump said he got a gallon but that his can wasn't filled up to the gallon mark.......of course the owner in there said the can was wrong...but the gentleman getting the gas said he has filled that can up many times and a gallon is a gallon...........so ever since then...........I have not stopped there and now that he is taking advantage of this horrible stituation....I will not stop there!!!!

They said on the radio this morning that you will probalbly not be able to get through on the phone #, they actually would prefer you write to the Governors office of consumer affairs with the details, including your contact information.

Either way, do not expect them to come out immediatley to do something. They will investigate and if warranted, issue a fine, but it will take some time.
I read recently that "most of today's reporters and journalists are no better than used car salesmen. When they're working, you just know they're lying to you." My first thought is that's an insult to used car salesmen!

More often than not, it has been my observation that more and more gas stations are owned and operated by foreigners.

Just an observation, NOT a politcal comment. No flack required.

I say we band together and form protest line to show him and all the other staions that we will not stand for it. It might even make the news and can spur action from other folks.

As I drove in this AM.

The prices at the Fina (?) at the bottom of 3 mile hill was $3.69 reg/ul; the Exxon was also $3.69 (the one that is the target here - diesel was $2.99) and the Coastal at the top of the hill next to Dallas Tire was $3.59.

biggrin.gif OK NOW HE FINALLY PUT HIS PRICES DOWN TO 3.19 ABOUT THE SAME AS THE OTHERS. BUT HE SOLD GAS YESTERDAY FOR 3.99 PER GALLON, HE MADE HIMSELF SOME FAST CASH PLUS MADE ALOT OF PEOPLE MAD AT HIM. WAS IT WORTH IT?? I DID FAX A COMPLAINT ON HIM WHICH I REALLY DON'T THINK IT WAS EVEN LOOKED AT YET. I STILL WILL NOT SET A FOOT IN THAT STORE AGAIN EVEN IF I RAN OUT OF GAS IN FRONT OF HIS STORE. happy.gif

My thoughts exactly!! I was in there with my boys and saw the glass stand with all the crack pipes in it. I asked him, "why are you selling these?" He got hateful and said "It is not against the law!!!!"

i stopped it his store back during the summer I am a bus driver and it was the day before payday. I needed gas and I got 10.00 worth. I had some ones and I paid the rest in change. He treated me as if I were a criminal asked me if I could use my credit card or if I could go to the bank and get bills for the change I had. I told him no on all parts and I would be glad to count the change for him. He got rather po'd aboout it and told me to stand there while he counted the money. I smiled and said I sure will!!!!!

I haven't been back in since then.

Folks, there is an article on www.georgia.gov that has a form and fax number to report price gouging. It might work better than trying to call it in. The Gov seemed pretty unhappy about it the other day. Sounds like he's ready to fine these people $5k per customer ($15k for seniors). Turn um in!

just wanted to comment about the gas station at 278 and buchanan hwy making everyone pre-pay for their gas on the gas panic day.......they did that because they had so many people running off without paying....i'm pretty regular there and i've known some of the people working there....they were in complete chaos...losing all kinds of money because of the drive offs.....i was pumping my gas just before they did all pre-pay (i was on empty...i NEEDED the gas lol)

EVERY GAS STATION RAISED THE PRICES ON SEPT 1 ST !!!

YES EVERY SINGLE ONE !!!

Why are you trying to single out 1 foreign owned station ?

I buy gas there all the time & I will continue to do so !
Everytime the clerks have always been nice & friendly... smile.gif

money hungry ? hahaha laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif
do you know what the profit margins on gasoline are for station owners ?
a few pennies per gallon...

This thread smells, and it ain't gas... ohmy.gif cool.gif

Yes, he sounds money hungry for charging up to 3.99 a gallon. While the others charged 2.99 and at the time he had it a 3.99 the most others charged was 3.19. And then wow, he put it down to 3.19.....so who do you think I would go to? Not someone that snubbed my nose at change given to him. Customer service is a big plus in a gas station. That is what keeps people going back to the same ones. And its instances such as on this thread that makes you remember to not go back.
