Baltimore Gas Stations Sued for Charging for Air

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) - A Baltimore-based gas station company is being sued for charging customers for air.

The class-action lawsuit was filed Monday under a little-known but longstanding Baltimore law that requires all gas stations in the city to provide at least one air pump to customers free of charge.

The case arose after Rebecca McCray of Owings Mills had to pay 50 cents to inflate her tires at a Royal Farms gas station in September. The lawsuit, which could end up including thousands of plaintiffs, was filed in Baltimore City Circuit Court against Royal Farms' parent company, Baltimore-based Two Farms, Inc.

The company operates dozens of gas stations throughout Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

A company spokesman didn't return a call for comment Thursday.
