Why does the gas at rt. 10 and pleasant vally way cost more than $4? Wasn't it $3.50 something before? Where do I report price gouging? After I fill up I will be making that call.

Very rude service person (the short one with the pony tail) at the gas station- rte.10 and Pleasant Valley Way. Got annoyed when I asked for a receipt then threw it at me when he came back. I suppose I wont get the customer of the year award.
