Consumer Tips for Pumping Gas

flickr - futureatlas.comDo you pay attention while your groceries are being rung up? Do you make sure everything scans correctly? What about when you fill your car with gas? Are you as equally observant?

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is reminding drivers to pay attention when they fill up their tanks. State inspectors and city sealers take steps to ensure consumers are paying for what they are getting, but we are told that consumers should also do their part to prevent pricing errors at the pump.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection provides the following tips for buying gas. Ask yourself these questions while you’re at the pump:

  • Does the price on the pump match the advertisement?
  • Is the pump set to zero before you start?
  • Does the price per gallon remain the same while you are pumping gas? There may be a problem if the numbers change, black out, or advance too fast.
  • Did the meter stop running when you stopped the pump?
  • Is the price accurate for the amount of gas you pumped? (Note that prices are rounded up to the nearest whole cent on the pump.)
  • Did you get a receipt? Make sure you get a receipt–this is your proof of purchase.
  • Did you make sure the receipt is correct? If you find an error, report the error to the store clerk immediately.

Oftentimes, I fill up and pay at the pump. Recently, I did just that and requested a receipt to print at the pump. As I was starting my car, the store clerk ran out to me and said I didn’t pay for my gas. I told him that I did pay and showed him my receipt. I’m not sure what he would have done if I didn’t have my receipt to prove that I had paid.

It’s important to note that according the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, “In 2010, state weights and measures inspectors tested more than 30,000 gas pumps. Consumers got their money’s worth 99.6% of the time.”

Thank you Green Bay Consumer for passing on these important consumer tips!
