The Californer/10233468

SAN FRANCISCO - Californer -- The lawsuit alleges that major oil companies have engaged in antitrust violations by providing false and/or misleading statements and failing to disclose critical information about shortchanging consumers on Premium 93-Octane Fuel. The plaintiff, California resident Richard H. Davis, is a consumer watchdog who is concerned about the practices of these companies.

The lawsuit was inspired by a Q&A ombudsman article written by Jonathan Welsh that appeared in the Wall Street Journal on The article raised concerns about the possibility of lower octane fuel being mixed with premium gasoline due to the retention of fuel in gas-pump hoses.

Davis argues that California drivers have been paying more for premium gasoline than consumers in any other state for years, and it is a matter of choice for those who prefer to use premium fuel. The lawsuit seeks to hold these oil companies accountable for their actions and to ensure that consumers are not shortchanged at the pump.
