GAS PRICES: Some stations' deceiving signs anger motorists


During rush hour Tuesday, a steady stream of cars was nevertheless seen filling up at NT Mobil. All those the Tonawanda News interviewed said it was desperation or convenience that kept them from seeking out a lower price.

Of four people who offered their reasons for paying more, one lived just down Robinson and admitted the convenience factor was key for him and others east of TCMH. Three others were heading back from work. The commuter crowd unanimously told of a combination of “trying to get home fast” and “on empty” as reasons to make the stop.
