Gas charges at Dollar car rental

Jump to last reply

Rented a car for the weekend at the Dollar rental agency at the Raleigh-Durham airport. As always, I opted to bring the car back with a full tank of gas. We had an early morning flight and couldn't find an open gas station so we decided to just return the car and pay the extra charge for their refueling. We were horrified to find out that Dollar was charging literally 4 times the price of gas at a gas station. I think they charges us $4.19 a gallon and refused to negogiate it. I have writte to Dollar asking for a 50% refund on the gas charges due to exhorbiant pricing. I am curious if other rental car companies charge 4 times the retail price of gas for a refueling charge.
