Recently a friend of mine purchased gas in Oregon. The attendant took the credit card, filled the tank and provided the receipt. Once home, a review of the receipt identified over 13 gallons of gas being charged. The car only holds 12 gallons and was over half full when filled. The return trip to the gas station with the receipt and car manual (identifying the tank capacity of the car) resulted in the manager stating the car manual must be in error. Since it was a credit card charge, it can be disputed.
In the rest of the country, each individual must push buttons on the pump and can see the pump has reset. In Oregon, the pump is out of sight and the customer is at the mercy of the attendant. Almost all attendants are honest. Lesson learned. Always ask for a receipt and glance at it to look at the amount of gas charged. The other option is to change the law and get cheaper gas.
