Gas stations conceal price signs
Ever seem like gasoline is more expensive near airports, where a driver is likely to top off a tank before returning a rental car? That’s certainly true outside Orlando International Airport, where the price at one pump was $5.79 per gallon a few days ago. Yep, about 2 bucks higher than you’d expect.
Problem is, you don’t see the price until the pump, because the two notoriously high gas stations closest to the airport don’t want you to know their prices until then, OrlandoSentinel.com reports.
Even though it’s been a year since Orlando passed a law requiring all stations in an area around the airport to post prices on signs visible from the street, the stations’ owners have refused to comply. The stations’ owners have sued over the law, and a trial is scheduled this fall.
