One woman decided to let others feel the pain at the pump.

(P-I file)

According to a police report released Sunday, a woman in her 20s paid $12.50 for gas last week at a First Hill 76 station.
After she pumped her gas, the woman went back to the cashier and accused him of shorting her by $1 in fuel.
That's less than a quart of gasoline.
The woman swore at him. He tried to escort her outside. As the clerk reached the door, the woman turned and punched him in the face.
Police searched around the 900 block of James Street where the incident happend, but didn't find the woman.
A gallon of regular unleaded gas averaged $4.386 Tuesday in the Seattle-Bellevue-Everett market, according to AAA (http://www.fuelgaugereport.com/WAmetro.asp).

If those pumps pictured are the ones in question. I would tend to agree with her. Guy might have needed punching....

Just curious, why did the clerk deserve to be punched? All he does
is take the cash at the register, he doesn't set the prices.

Catch the word "might"? He could have easily been the owner of said short filling pump. She wasn't mad about the price. She said he shorted her.
