Inspectors with the Georgia Department of Agriculture have locked all fuel pumps at three Camden County gas stations.
The stations are Cisco Travel Plazas at Exit 1 and Exit 6 on Interstate 95, and the Cisco Express station also at Exit 6 in Kingsland.
The Department took action because the owners have failed to follow through with the agreement reached with the state earlier this year.
“They have failed to make the first payment of the monetary penalty due,” said Commissioner of Agriculture Tommy Irvin.
In February, Georgia Department of Agriculture inspectors discovered pumps at the stations were shorting customers by not delivering enough gasoline.
The stations were allowed to re-open after the owner of the stations, Global Energy USA LLC, agreed to pay $500,000 of which $250,000 would be suspended provided there are no further problems at the stations.
“These pumps will remain locked until that monetary penalty is paid,” Irvin said.
