KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A federal court jury has ruled that selling gasoline that has not been adjusted for its temperature does not violate the Kansas Consumer Protection Act. The jury returned the verdict Monday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kan. The issue is whether customers are shortchanged when buying gasoline that is over 60 degrees in temperature. The plaintiffs had sued gasoline retailers including QuikTrip, 7-Eleven and Kum & Go. The case was consolidated from 26 cases filed across the country. The Kansas City Star reports the plaintiffs argued that customers get less fuel for the price as the gasoline heats up. However, the jury ruled that selling gasoline over the 60-degree industry standard does not constitute deceptive practices under the consumer protection law.
