My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: New York
I've been buying gas for my lawnmower for years at the convenience store at the end of the street. I take an Arizona iced tea jug (heavy polypropylene plastic) over and squirt 50¢ of gas into it. Today when I started to fill the jug, the clerk came running out and tried to stop me. He said that he couldn't sell me gas because I did not have a regulation gas container. However it didn't stop me - I had already paid for it. Is this some new regulation? Fifty cents of gas would get lost in a big container.
