Viewers respond to gas station violations, high NV Energy bill

CREATED Nov 13, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Action News has updates on two Contact 13 stories from this week that impacted hundreds of our viewers.

On Monday, we told you about violations found at local gas stations. Hundreds of our viewers left comments online, regarding this story.

Contact 13 obtained inspection records from the state for nearly 300 gas stations over the last year.

As we discovered, gas pumps might not always be accurate. In fact, inspectors found 152 different gas stations weren't giving drivers the right amount of fuel.

If you want to know if the gas station near you is an offender, here's how you can learn more about the state records for your favorite gas station: Just call (702) 668-4546.

Keep in mind, there may be a fee and it could take up to five days for a reply to your request.

Another Contact 13 story that thousands of our viewers saw at 11 p.m. Tuesday on our newscast and nearly 20,000 people viewed online, is the story on the Las Vegas man who got slapped with a $6,300 power bill.

When he wasn't happy with the $8.18 credit the power company wanted to give him, he turned to Contact 13. We handled his problem and his bill was wiped away because it was a major mistake.

A lot of our viewers weighed in on this on Facebook and said they've been in similar situations with a mistaken bill.

Don't forget Southern Nevada, we've got your back with all your consumer issues and we hear what you're saying.
