Was that gas or diesel? Why not surpise you!

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Drivers in the Eugene-Springfield area beware: you might be cruising around with some bad fuel. A gas mix-up at a Springfield station left several cars damaged, and there could be many more.

A fuel driver from Jackson Oil made a delivery to the 76 Fairway station on 4059 Main Street in Springfield on Monday at 2 p.m. However, it turns out he filled some diesel into the regular unleaded tanks, and some regular into the diesel tanks.

The 76 manager says they didn't find out until Tuesday at 8a.m.

Kroger recalls ground beef...charges you more to replace

Kroger recalled all styrofoam wrapped ground beef last week. I bought a package the day before they announced the recall. Since then I got a message on a receipt that said DO NOT CONSUME THIS PRODUCT. So I felt inclined to take it back to the store. I could either get a refund or replace the product. I opted to replace it. What I didn't realize is that to replace the product I had to pay the difference of the price I paid last week for the stryrofoamed wrapped product to the tubed packages that were the only product available at the time I exchanged this week. The difference was $9.50 additional to the price I paid the week before! I said no, just give me a refund. I should of kept it and ignored the message in BOLD letters on the receipt and cooked it to 160F. I called Kroger to complain. When an item is recalled usually the corporations repair or replace the item at no cost to the consumer, not charge them more. I should of got it at Safeway where it was on sale for slightly less and wasn't recalled. Oh well.
