GAINESVILLE, Fla. (Legal Newsline) – Customers have filed a class-action lawsuit against a retail gas station chain over allegations it improperly charged money from its customers.

Steven Gregory Holt and Robert Enslen, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Dec. 15, 2017, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida against Murphy USA Inc. alleging unjust enrichment, negligence and other counts.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that “when Murphy customers purchase products that are discounted or on sale with Murphy-funded discounts in whole or part during in-store purchases, Murphy charges and purports to collect ‘sales tax’ on the full price of the item, without application of the portion of the discount that is funded by Murphy to reduce the sales price of the item,” according to the suit.
