If you buy gas @ the Speedway on Winchester Road @ Detroit, or where 7th Street runs into Winchester Road, notice as your putting the gas nozzle in your car if the pump shoots up .15 to .50 cents before you touch the trigger to begin fueling...Also, notice say if you're putting in $40 of gas in your car...@$20 notice how many gallons you've put in, for example...say it's 5.5 gallons @$20, then it should be 11 gallons @$40...I've noticed it's always less...this place is possibly taking us for a ride on gas. Plus they're always the first to take the price of gas up, and the last to bring it down. In addition many police cars get gas here...why haven't they noticed??? This are our tax dollars buying gas.

I've gone back in to report it to the employees and they act like I'm lying...I won't be back, but my complaint to the state will!

Just to prove one point...I drove by this morning and he'd jacked up gas to 3.59!!! A mile away @ Thorton I saw 3.31!!! This after the price of oil by the barrel has dropped to 77 to 84 dollars a barrell!!!

It's a known fact police and fire department employees don't give a shit how much fuel they waste.

Report the problem to the Kentucky Dept. of Agriculture in Frankfort. It is in charge of regulating and inspecting gas pumps to make sure they are accurate and not ripping people off.

There's no he'd jacked the price up when referring to Speedway pricing, all pricing is sent to the stores from their cooperate offices. As a former employee I do know that the state tested the locations at least 2 times per year and had the tanks checked by the in house maintenance several times throughout the year. Speedway isn't your typical mom and pop gas station, they're supported with Marathon money and have the tools to track their pumps to insure these kinds of problems don't come up. Like I said I use to work for Speedway and enjoyed my time with them so I do see the other side of things here and not just an opinion from the another customer that's pissed about the prices.

Then why is the price @ 3.69 @ Winchester Rd & Detroit when the ones @ I-75 and Richmond Rd are 3.38??? The only ones I've seen the past 24 hours.

This doesn't also change the fact when you go to fuel the pumps they jump to .18 to .48 cents before you touch the trigger???

Because the first post on this thread said something about police filling up at that location and why hadn't they noticed the price jump. That's why the poster said that. Read everything before you open your mouth!

Very dirty with bums everywhere and the most rude employees in town. I quit going there years ago, Thortons up the street is nicer all around.

It IS filthy and yes the BUMS are rampant, their all over you and get nasty if you don't hand over free money, on top of that the employees are rude, especially some guy, maybe in his 30's has a real attitude, and their pumps, were at least running up almost .50 cents before you even touched the trigger to begin fueling....AVOID THIS PLACE AND TELL EVERYONE ELSE TO AS WELL!!!

Just FYI the City has a contract with Speedway/Marathon and pay a set price for fuel at all stations throughout the life of the contract and not what the pumps says. So whether they are filling up at Winchester/Detriot or North Broadway/7th on that day they are paying the same price. So know the facts before you bash the men and women that keep your ass safe or pull you from a burning building or your car when you wreck it because your texting!

Here we go again!!! They raised gas prices to 3.65.9 @ the Speedway on Winchester rd @ Detroit/7th street!!!!! Oil has dropped consistantly over the past almost 2 months, I can, and did get it for 3.29.9.

This guy, the owner is the first to raise prices and the last to drop them...HOW can he, or ANYONE justify raises gas prices as it really should be closer to, or even below 3.00 a gallon???

Avoid this place, besides you'll be beat to death by the lowlife's down the block at the homeless shelter that's supposed to be a church for handouts, and if you don't give them anything they get beligerent with you.
