N.J. Gas Station Operators Sue BP


A group of about 20 BP gas station operators in Newark, N.J., have filed a lawsuit against BP, accusing the company of reneging on contracts, the New Jersey Star-Ledger reported.


According to the suit, BP allegedly agreed in 2006 to continue the operator contracts that were in place for four years and renew them on expiration.


Then, in September BP said it would not renew the contracts and instead offered to sell the stations to the operators at what the operators said were inflated prices.


The operators are appealing to the court to force BP to stay with the existing agreement and prevent the gas company from making significant changes.
