BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Honesty isn't the best policy, in Palm Beach County, it is the policy for gas station owners.
Effective in 2015, a newly approved ordinance will require gas station signs to post the highest price someone will pay for gas — as opposed to just posting the discounted “cash” price.
From the Board of County Commissioners:
The Board unanimously agreed to make amendments to the county’s fuel price sign ordinance. The changes would require retailers to post the highest price a customer would pay for each type of fuel available and to prominently indicate when a posted price is a discounted cash price.
Gas station owners will have one year to retrofit their signs so the cash only price is posted with the same sized letters as the numbers advertising the other fuel prices.
“I believe this change will provide the consumer with full knowledge of the gas station’s pricing and will end any confusing or misleading signage,” said Commissioner Hal Valeche, who brought the matter before the Board.
The law will take effect once it is approved by the Secretary of State.
