Shell / deceptive advertising

1 San Antonio, TX, United States Review updated:

I stopped at Shell station (2315 SW 36th St) this morning. The ad sign in front of the station had in big letters a price of $2.099. I didn't notice until I pulled up to the pump and saw the price of $2.349 on t he pump that above the big $2.099 price on the sign was in small letters "with car wash". The price on the pumps should be the highlighted price on your signs. I feel this is deceptive advertising and will not visit Shell again. Other gas companies do not lure customers with this technique, and those are the ones I will frequent.

    That is deceptive advertising bordering on false advertisement. I will make a point to never spend my money at that gas station! Thank you for warning future victims of this intentional deception/fraud.
