Sneaky gas pricing from Shell

Sneaky pricing at a Shell station in Nashua, NH

A Shell station near Exit 4 in Nashua, NH. Largest price displayed is $2.45.9, but that’s the “price with wash.” The actual price for regular is $2.75.9.

Several Shell stations in New Hampshire and Massachusetts have adopted a sneaky way of displaying their prices. The largest displayed price looks amazingly low, but a closer look shows that that’s the price with a car wash, and that the actual price of regular gas bought by itself is considerably higher.

Shell stations in California have been caught doing the same stunt.

As long as they’re playing this “Shell game,” I’m avoiding all Shell stations.
