Well it seems that not only high gas prices are sucking up our dollars, now we have to contend with gasoline outlets that are shorting Texas consumers at the pump. Worse yet is the fact that consumer complaints are up a whopping 500 % over last year. Make sure you check the pump or you won't need to check your wallet.
Here is a couple of brief excerpts from the story:
“Inspectors from the Texas Department of Agriculture found 990 of the 1,704 Sunmart fuel pumps were cheating consumers. At some stations, every single pump was coming up short on gas.”
“But Houston-area residents have even worse news to deal with now: Harris County has more gas stations that have been fined for cheating consumers than any other county in Texas.”

"Search any ZIP code in the Houston area or the entire state of Texas and find gas pumps that state inspectors previously took out of service. You can also find details about what state inspectors found and see if you live or work near any of those pumps. "
