Any individual or station owner interested in reporting a violation of Minn. Stat. 325D.71 should submit a Below Cost Gas Pricing Complaint Form to the Department. It can be completed on line.
Please fill out the entire form, verify the information on it, and add your name to certify that the information is true and correct. We ask that you submit a form for every day of suspected below cost pricing.
We request that you not call the Weights & Measures office to provide a verbal complaint, but rather ask that you submit a complaint form.
Once the Department determines that an investigation is warranted, a warning of a possible violation of the law will be sent and an investigation case file will be opened. If the Department of Commerce determines that a violation of Minnesota Statutes Section 325D.71 continues to occur, the Commissioner of Commerce may issue a Cease and Desist order to any business owner or operator found in violation, and the violating owner or operator may be subject to penalties under law. The penalty for violating a Cease and Desist Order can be severe. (Up to $10,000 per day.)
Please fill in the form as completely as possible
Verify all information. DO NOT report a posted legal price.
Any additional supplemental documentation should be mailed to:
