RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The state Board of Agriculture has approved changes to the way North Carolina gas stations advertise the price of fuel. The rule change is aimed at making sure consumers know when a gas station charges different prices for cash and credit card purchases of fuel. The decision came during the board's meeting on Wednesday. Jerry Butler of the measurement section at the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services' Standards Division says the rule change will require clearer labeling to draw customers' attention to the difference in price for credit card payments. Some gas stations offer a lower price on cash, because they don't have to pay a credit card processing fee. The change must be approved by the state Rules Review Commissioner before it can take effect. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
