22 N.J. gas stations cited for violations after surprise inspections

A two-week sweep of surprise inspections at hundreds of New Jersey gas stations found violations at 22 locations, including two that were selling lower quality gasoline than advertised, state officials said. Many of the violations were for minor alleged problems including failure to show inspection certificates or missing security seals on pumps, but two stations were selling gas below the advertised octane.

Runway Gas on Greenwood Avenue in Trenton and USA Gas on Landis Avenue in Vineland were issued the fuel grade violations after samples were sent to a lab for confirmation, authorities said.

The state Division of Consumer Affairs conducted the of inspections from June 11 to 27 at 371 stations throughout New Jersey. Stations found to be in violation of fuel laws and regulations face fines of up to $1,500 per violation.

"When stations are charging nearly 50 cents a gallon more for premium gasoline, the potential for illegal profit can be a temptation for unscrupulous station owners," said Paul R. Rodríguez, acting Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs.

The campaign resulted in 20 additional citations for a variety of other alleged violations, but Rodríguez said 99 percent of stations inspected were pumping the proper grade of fuel.
