For Twin Cities gas station owners, record prices at the pump aren't the windfall people think
June 17, 2022
About a decade ago, when gas prices last surged above $3 a gallon, Chuck Graff put up a message on the sign at his St. Anthony gas station: "We Hate Our Gas Prices Too."
Early this month, he did it again and suddenly he was on the national news.
"It's kind of our way of showing empathy for customers that we feel your pain, too," Graff said in an interview this week.
Turns out that most gas station owners feel the same way - with good reason.
