BROCKTON, MA — An infuriated gas customer called police to complain about high gas prices from a Warren Avenue gas station on Wednesday night. Officers responded to Prestige Gas at 761 Warren Ave. after receiving a 911 call at 8:10 p.m. from a man upset at the price of gas.
The man, who was not identified, “couldn’t believe super (unleaded) was $4.13 a gallon and he only got 6 gallons for $25,” police logs show.
Store clerk Sherry Lincoln said the man paid $25 in cash, pumped his gas, then came back into the store “yelling and screaming in front of the customers.”
“He said that he wanted his money back, that he didn’t get $25 in gas,” Lincoln said.
“I’m like, ‘Why are you so mad?’” she added.
The man, who bought premium unleaded, kept insisting that he didn’t pump $25 in gas, Lincoln said.
“He was very mad, very very mad,” Lincoln said.
Massachusetts, where we vote for John “No Drilling” Kerry, Barack “Energy Prices Skyrocket” Obama and Joe “No To Cheap Oil” Kennedy…then call the cops when gas hits $4.13 a gallon.
