COMMACK - A Commack gas station has been shut down after Suffolk County Consumer Affairs says its owners sold regular gas at premium prices.

According to inspectors, USA Petroleum on Veterans Highway was caught selling the low-octane fuel at a more expensive price twice over the course of three months.

Officials say the station has lost its license and faces fines ranging from $5,500 to up to $30,000. Suffolk Consumer Affairs also says it will be stepping up inspections at gas stations across the county.
