Gas station scandal in Maremma: finance discovers “rigged” prices and fake fuels

GROSSETO. As if the soaring fuel prices were not enough these days, there are also gas station attendants who do as they please. To the detriment – of course – of the customers. “Stripped” more and more. The financial police, however, have found some. And he fined them for various irregularities. The yellow flames carried out checks from Follonica to Capalbio, also passing through Grosseto. But also in various inland municipalities, such as Pitigliano, Cinigiano, Roccalbegna, Massa Marittima and the whole Amiata area.

The most noted infringement – found on six occasions – is the irregular advertising of the prices indicated. That is, the figures in the sign in the street, the one that the drivers look at before pulling over and refueling, reported different prices than those actually applied by the petrol stations. Not only that, the prices in some cases had not been communicated to the Ministry of Economic Development. The sanctions detached from finance also reach € 3096 each.

But it doesn’t stop there. Also during the checks, the finance department found that two distributors had columns with totalizers that indicated different supplies from the actual one supplied. In one case, the delivered diesel status was found to be non-compliant as a fuel.
