Man Exposes Gas Station Scam - It’s Happening All Over The U.S.

One man was shocked to find out he was being charged for gas when he wasn't even pumping it. The man is a YouTuber, so he immediately pulled out his phone and started filming. He's warning people everywhere about the scam.

YouTuber Kal P posted a video showing what happened to him at a Citgo station in Illinois. “I went to prepay 25 bucks to put gas in my car,” he said. “And then suddenly I noticed something really strange.”

Kal focused the camera on the gas pump nozzle sitting on his car. “You see where the nozzle is? It’s right on the trunk,” he said. “Do you see any leaking gas from it? None.”

Then he panned over to the pump meter. The numbers were climbing.

“These things keep on charging me. I don’t know for what,” he said. “Maybe for air? I thought the air was free. Be careful next time when you gas up at CITGO,” he continued.

The phantom gas didn't cost much at the time, but if you think about every unsuspecting customer getting charged a few extra nickels and dimes day in, day out, that could amount to an incredible amount of cash.
