On Lake Norman just outside of Charlotte every fuel station on the lake has a $3.999 price for a gallon of gas. The pumps are so old that the highest price they can go to is $3.999. State law says that the only way the gas price can be enforced is if it is registered on the pump dials. There are only 2 other places on the lake that have newer pumps that are able to charge $4.16/gallon. Currently gas on the streets is $3.85 for mid-grade, which is what is sold on the lake. So, if the marinas don't buy new pumps, they are SOL....

haha, thats pretty funny. I'll be interested to see how long the pumps last. I bet they already have the pumps on the way, and we'll be paying for them all summer long. I expect we'll see $5/gal on the water this summer...easy.

Was out Friday night. Gas pump at our harbor can only run up to $2.999 so they have it set per 1/2 Gallon... $1.95 X 2. Not sure if that is totally legal.. but... it is clearly marked.. no way to misunderstand... That happened around here in the early 80's when gas got out of hand.. I remember old pumps doing that..
