9780984983117: Getting Hosed? Secrets, Confessions and Tales from a Gas Station Owner

The title of this book, Getting Hosed? refers to how consumers often feel like they are getting a rotten deal from the oil companies. Or more simply stated, people feel like they are getting screwed by gas station owners and their suppliers of fuel. Some people blame the gas station dealer (the owner and operator) and put them in the same category as the oil companies, but this is a big mistake. It is my hope that this book will reveal to you that the gas station dealer is not making millions of dollars off the consumer through higher and higher gas prices. Most gas station owners are just small businessmen and businesswomen struggling to survive. This book reveals an interesting combination of oil company secrets, dealer confessions of how and why prices are the way they are, and some funny, sad and unbelievable gas station tales. This should help you gain a better perspective from someone who was just a little bit closer to it all than most people were. Along with you, I too was getting hosed by the oil companies.

About the Author:

David Nassaney has been the owner of 6 gas stations in California since 1976. Before that, he had worked at or managed several gas stations for many different family members since 1966. Prior to that, his father had owned, and managed gas stations and garages since 1945 in New York City and California. They have seen a lot of changes in the gas station business over the years.

Review:

Dave s portrayal of the oil industry is pretty accurate, based on my experiences of suing them for over 20 years. The oil companies will usually do what is in their best interest, unless they are forced to consider the dealer s best interest, (and that s when I usually get involved.) Attorneys are the great equalizer when it comes to fighting big oil companies, and it is only getting worse. Dave s experiences at his location are pretty typical for a gas station dealer, and some of those stories he tells are pretty hilarious. This is a very entertaining and educational book that is a quick and enjoyable read. --Thomas P. Bleau, Attorney & Partner at Bleau Fox, a Prof. Law Corp.

When I started reading this book, I was immediately taken back to when I opened my first gas station in 1974. My fuel supply was cut off by Exxon, and I was quickly surrounded by angry motorists who did not believe the oil company s reasons for the gas lines that were airing on the nightly news. Dave discusses a very accurate account of the life of a gas station dealer, especially the oil companies attempts at fixing prices, rest room problems and nearly every other aspect of being a dealer. You will learn much from this enjoyable book, whether you lived through it, or are hearing these stories for the very first time. But this time you ll be viewing them through the eyes of the person on the other side of the counter. --Tim Hamilton, Petroleum Industry Consultant/Exec. Dir. A.T.O.
