JR, i seriously doubt a resident would be upset if he/ she wasn't fiven preferential treatment in obtaining gas..i do believe a Wyckoff resident,myself included, would be angered if we drove to Waldwick for much needed gas and were turned away because we are not Waldwick reisdents

Thank you qdogPa! Some people put words in other people's mouths! We know Rooney doesn't OWN the gas station - he rents it! Yes, I know all about his relatives but that has nothing to do with limiting gas to Wyckoff people. Yes, I am a resident but I think about it and say to myself, "if I went to another town and they refused me gas" I would be upset too! That's all we are saying! And yes, he is charging more for gas then even stations on Rt. 17. Forget LukeOil in Wyckoff - they are always hi priced and they DID charge their price and made it higher during the hurricane. They should be reported!!! (Says Christie)

Once again Linda, you are incorrect. He owns that station.

JR - do you have a problem in life?? Every time you comment it is NEGATIVE. Who cares if he owns it, rents it, etc., what he did was WRONG!!!!!
