South Tahoe’s newest gas station opens

The gas station owned by Raley’s opened at 5am Tuesday at the Y in South Lake Tahoe.

People are already filling up their tanks and getting their vehicles washed.

The inside mart is full of the typical drinks and snack food items one would expect. A few unexpected items are the souvenirs, beach items and sundries people might need or want.

    Read the fine print:

    Grocery purchase excludes tobacco, alcohol, fuel, MILK, prescription drugs, postage stamps, lottery tickets, gift cards, and sales tax.

    While promotion lasts.

    Limit fuel up to 50 gallons

    Question: is there an expiration date for the receipt? How does one use the receipt?

    Not convinced this is a deal, considering Raley’s prices and exclusions. Convenience for tourists, maybe.

    I went in to the station today, it is a great addition to the Y area. But can someone explain why there is only one entrance and exit? There are two others on the property, one blocked by cones and one blocked by a rail and post fence.

    Is this another example of a great addition to the lake screwed up by some short thinking individuals? The previous Shell had two egress’ on to the highway.

    Anything to make a dent in Sam’s control over gas prices. Good work, Raley’s.

    What was the price? $4.17? I paid $3.85 in Gardnerville. Tahoe is still a hugh rip-off !

    If the difference in price at Railey’s doesn’t provide proof of Sam’s “pricefixing” what does?
    The city seems happy to collect the higher based taxes & has allowed this practice to have gone on for many years…… What say they, to the Federal guidelines on pricefixing?
