GASDA has been asked to send this out to all gasoline retailers in Connecticut. This attorney is well known and has recovered money for dealers in our industry before. His son is also a station owner in Greenwich so he understands our industry.
Most of his cases are class action so no cost to those he represents, but each case is different. The Associations position is if you are supplied by any of the companies in the below email, you should contact Marty at 203-629-4900 to get all the information for you to make a decision.

Hi Mike,

As we discussed:

Its alleged that Blue Rhino and AmeriGas, the two largest distributors of propane exchange tanks in the country, conspired to reduce the amount of propane they would put in their tanks and thereby raise the per-pound price of propane across the country.

Until 2008, Blue Rhino and AmeriGas both packed their tanks with 17 pounds of propane. Starting spring 2008, however, Blue Rhino and AmeriGas began conspiring to reduce that fill level to 15 pounds per tank while maintaining the same price per “full” tank, for the purpose of increasing their margins on the sale of propane exchange tanks. Their conspiracy effectively raised the prices charged to purchasers by more than 13% per pound. This conduct amounts to a blatant violation of the antitrust laws.

On March 27, 2014, the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) issued a complaint against Blue Rhino and AmeriGas, alleging that they violated Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. § 45. As the FTC concluded, Blue Rhino and AmeriGas’s “conduct has restrained price competition and led to higher prices for sales of propane exchange tanks in the United States.”

Direct purchasers of Blue Rhino and/or AmeriGas propane tanks such as service stations are eligible to be part of the class and entitled to treble damages is we are successful.

If you offer propane exchange tanks from Ferrellgas, Blue Rhino, Amerigas Partners or UGI, we would like to speak with you to explain your options.
