Gas pumps in Rockland County get thorough inspection

Posted: Updated:
NEW CITY -

Rockland County is making sure you're getting what you pay for at the pump.

Officials from Consumer Protection made a surprise visit at the new Gulf Station in New City today.

They tested each grade of gasoline at the pumps to ensure all dispensing and pricing is within acceptable limits.

The county also checked the seals on the pumps and searched for possible credit card skimmers. "One of the things we want to make sure is the public is actually getting what they pay for. If the pump is saying one gallon of fuel, we need to ensure its dispensing that amount of fuel. If the pump is saying $2.15 a gallon, we need to make sure they are charging $2.15 a gallon," says Director of Consumer Protection Jim Elcik.

Each pump that passes inspection gets a seal of approval. Pumps that fail will be closed before being re-inspected.
