need to pay attention

We went out to eat this evening and my wife wanted to take her car .... I noticed it was low on fuel Gas prices have been on the upward swing lately but we came upon a station that listed $2.25 per gallon, 10 cheaper than most so I stopped to fill her car up. After pumping awhile I noticed the price at the pump was $3.15 so she only got $20 worth.

I know I should have verified the price before I started pumping but I never expected the price on the sign to be that far off from the price at the pump

$3.15 for gas!!! I pay $2.59 for diesel. That's robbery.

I wonder how many folks buy gas there and never notice what they really paid? It's probably been a few years since I went to that store and they don't do a lot of business - I know I won't go back!

Pay with credit/debit, and sometimes you won't notice as your attention is on the keypad, not the dials. My station may be a few minutes before they change the flip signs on the highway, but never more than a nickel or so. I have mentioned before, we have a guy (not from here) who runs several stations with convenience stores attached. He is $2.59 on regular and $3.29 on diesel, and he is only a mile from the one I use. People STILL line up to buy his overpriced products. I just don't see it. The difference is several day's lunch for me 70 cents a gallon.
