Is it legal for a gas station to be without a road-side sign? The Real Deal

A NewsChannel 9 viewer recently pulled up to a gas station but he didn’t know the price of the gas because there was no sign.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – A NewsChannel 9 viewer recently pulled up to a gas station but he didn’t know the price of the gas because there was no sign.

The viewer wanted to know if it’s illegal for a gas station to not have a sign.

The owner at the particular Sunoco station told NewsChannel 9 that his roadside sign had blown down in late January. He said that he hoped to have the sign replaced by mid-March.

According to the State Department of Agriculture, however, he won’t need to hurry. Such signs are not regulated by that department.

However, gas vendors must post the price per gallon of fuel on the pumps themselves.

In addition, those signs must be at least 12 inches high and 12 inches wide with numerals that are at least nine by two inches.

If the pumps have more than one grade of fuel, both the lowest and the highest selling prices must be posted.
