Shell tried to drive Shell gas station operators out of business

FROM OUR SHELL NEWS ARCHIVE 9 DECEMBER 2004

THE BOSTON HERALD: Jury: Shell abused owners: Gas stations `vindicated’ in ploy by big oil company: “We’ve been vindicated,” said Mike Corbett, owner of City Square Shell in Charlestown, a member of a group of area dealers who’ve been battling Shell for more than four years over control of their stations. “This is big for us. They beat us up for so many years. It was terrible what they did,” he said.

How Shell lost a 40 year customer

John,

As a public service you may want to post this link about this particular SHELL gas station:

Corrib gas could push up prices

10 July 2011 By John Burke Public Affairs Correspondent

Homeowners are facing the ‘‘very likely’’ risk that energy prices could rise due to competition between the new Corrib gas supply and the Bord Gáis owned undersea gas-supply interconnectors, the state energy regulator has warned.

In a paper published last week, the regulator said that any decline in demand for gas from the Bord Gáis interconnectors could be expected to fall following the addition of supply sources, but it also warned that this might lead to higher prices for consumers. read more
