It has come to my attention that an LCO in my area is charging a $2.00 per mow gas surcharge for residential customers. That means the customers are basically paying the entire fuel bill when the idea is to supplement the price increase at the pump. This has to be price gouging and I am quite sure it is against the law. The Customer can hire someone else you say??? You can also buy gas at a different gas station if you find one gouging but it's still illegal so that argument doesn't hold. At $2.00 a pop the LCO might even be making a small profit on some of the smaller customers. Raising prices is one thing but this is misleading and just plain greed. Imagine Mrs Jones finds out that because of the fuel surcharge you told her had to be applied due to the higher prices at the pump actually means the LCO pays nothing for gas instead of the thousands they paid last year. Any other opinions???
