Many of us can't go without gas in the tank of our cars. But when you fill up, how do you know you're getting what you pay for?
Don wrote to us and asked "Who inspects gas pumps to make sure when we pay for a gallon, we really get a gallon?"
One motorist, Greg Dixon, says you can't be too sure when you pull up to the pump.
"All the time, I wonder do I trust this thing? I mean I can read the monitor, but I'm really not sure," said Dixon.
He drops in for a fill-up about twice a week, but never really thought about who regulates gas stations.
"I think they just set it and that's what you have to go by," he said.
Van Sublett says he thought the station's company or owner kept an eye on the stations.
"Just go in there and ask the store owner about it," he said.
We found that the Georgia Department of Agriculture keeps tabs on gas pumps.
Spokesman Arty Schronce says his agency keeps up with the more than 168,000 pumps at 8,000 gas stations across Georgia.
"Through regulatory inspections, the Fuel and Measures Division protects consumers by verifying the accuracy of weights and measures used in commercial transactions, the quality and quantity of motor fuels," said Schronce in a statement.
He says the department does that through inspections, the state's fuel oil laboratory and the state weights laboratory, which measures how much fuel you get and its quality.
Schronce says the state has about 19 inspectors who check out each station every 18 months or so.
If you ever want to file a complaint against a service station you can contact the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
They'll need information including the name and address of the station, the pump number and how much gas you got and the amount you paid.
They advise keeping your receipt because that information is generally on there.
You can call the department at 404-656-3605.
