SERVICE STATION DEALERS ASSOCIATION OF MICHIGAN SUPPORTS ACTIONS FILED BY ENGLER AND KELLEY FOR GASOLINE QUALITY VIOLATIONS

SERVICE STATION DEALERS ASSOCIATION OF MICHIGAN SUPPORTS ACTIONS FILED
 BY ENGLER AND KELLEY FOR GASOLINE QUALITY VIOLATIONS
 LANSING, Mich., Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The Service Station Dealers Association of Michigan announced today its strong support for the actions taken by Gov. John Engler and Attorney General Frank J. Kelley in prosecuting more than 50 gasoline retailers for gasoline quality violations.
 "We are pleased that Gov. Engler and Attorney General Kelley have taken such a strong stand in prosecuting these cases," said Daniel J. Loepp, executive director of the Service Station Dealers Association of Michigan. "There is no place in the legitimate business market for people who cheat the public. While everyone deserves their due process, those who are convicted should be put out of business for good. The vast majority of dealers are legitimate business people, and they are hurt by the actions of a few. That is why we applaud the state taking such decisive action."
 Loepp pointed out that the public can take some steps to ensure that they are buying good, clean gasoline. The Service Station Dealers suggest the following:
 -- Know who you are purchasing your gasoline from. If you get to know your gasoline retailer (dealer) and develop a good business relationship, your chances are much better of not having a problem.
 -- If the price is too good to be true, it is; then move on to a reputable dealer. Barring a price war, if the price of gasoline is too low you should be suspicious. While pricing can be competitive, if someone is totally out of the market there probably is a reason and not a very good one.
 "People who cheat not only hurt the public but hurt the legitimate dealer and that is why we applaud the actions taken by the governor and attorney general. Actions like this clean up the marketplace for the public and also for the vast majority of hard-working and honest gasoline dealers," Loepp said.
