Adel gas station fined for price gouging

November 15, 2005

Adel - A South Georgia gas station is caught gas gouging.

Tristar Petro at the Adel Truck Plaza was fined $10,000 for overcharging customers. Fourteen other Georgia gas stations were also caught gas gouging in an investigation conducted by the Governor's Office of Consumer Affairs.

In addition to being fined, the guilty gas stations must also post signs on gas pumps saying that customers who think they were overcharged and have their receipts will be reimbursed.

The money from the fines will go into the state treasury.
