The car was does a nice job. Do notice that the price posted for the gas on the large sign is the cash price, if you pay any other way, its three cents more. You don't notice this till you get up to the pump.

Sorry, already agreed with Dunks for that spot. I bet people would love to catch a board member getting something for free but sorry I can't . The Dunkin donuts across teh street will be the same owners as the one on my site, they have you either way you go. I also agree with the other post this is the best place for a gas station and lets not forget a CAR WASH also,lol. The owners of the station have told me they are going to be qithin 1 cent or lower than Haffners at all times, so that will be pretty low. The money I gave the town, $20,000 is to be used for the contruction of the improvements that will be made for that corner. I do not think they can use it for anything else but that but not 100% sure. Again when this project is done you will be very impressed with the site and the looks of it. Hope to see you all there and will inform when the grand opening will be.

Gateway citgo, Unleaded regular $2.29.9
Haffners " " $2.26.9

VJ - are you sure that number is right? I just paid $2.299 there on Wednesday - I can't believe it went up 40 cents in 2 days.

It's okay - you still made your point. The price is not within 1 cent of Haffner's. Close, but not quite.

...just another example of bait and switch pricing!! The gigantic sign should indicate it's the cash price. All they want to do is to try to lure you into the store in the hopes of you buying something on an impulse.

I'll stick with Haffners, the price you see is what you pay.

Does anyone else still charge different prices for cash vs. credit? I haven't seen anyone do that in years. I thought that practice was gone for good.

I haven't been there yet, but it sounds like yu don't find out the credit price until you swipe the card. If that's the case, it too late for my liking.

The BOS thought that a Hotel would not be right for Tewksbury for that spot, but a gas station is? Doesn't make sense to me!

It's a bit decieving, however....on their big price sign out front, they do I have a little bitty sign attached that says cash.....so I guess they're covering their butts...
