Sharon, I hope that particular rumor is true, as Simpson Bay does need a gas station.

Sharon the Tanks were completely dug out and the holes were filled back fully solid . Condos , Restaurants and Marina is what is going to be there.

I'm glad, we got ripped off in March at that station.

Any station could do the same IF you do not know the exchange rate and how the gas is dispensed. Anyone that frequents the island should have a BASIC understanding of the gas situation.

No gas in Simpson Bay is going to put a real hurt on many tourists, locals and car rental agencies. This is not something I would be "glad" about.

Lesley,

Don't remember if I mentioned this or not but we had no problems at all finding the SOL Station across from the Harley dealership. Thanx!!

On Dutch side $20 should find the amount registered on the pump to be 35.7 regardless of how many liters are showing. The guilder has been pegged to the dollar at a fixed rate for many years.

I understand that and always figure accordingly. When someone alleges they were "ripped off" it implies a lack of knowledge and understanding on their part also. I am not at all saying what happened (whatever it was) was right. But to be "glad" a station is not going to be in in that heavily used and traveled area close to the airport is perhaps a little strong. It is going to have a negative impact on many people.

One needs to know the exchange rate, the price per gallon/litre and figure accordingly to avoid problems.

That is why Cadesco on way to Orient is a good deal At 0.83 US$ per liter.They take plastic now,but probably not $ for Euro at par.

Sorry, but if staying in Simpson Bay and you are needing gas or returning a rental near the airport, I don't get driving towards Orient to get the gas.
