Most Vermonters are getting what they pay for at the pump.

The Vermont Agency of Agriculture says inspections show consumers are getting accurate gas amounts at the nearly 500 gas stations around the state. The accuracy rate statewide is 98 percent.

The agency’s consumer protection section says it monitors all gas pumps for accuracy and investigates consumer complaints.

Last year, the state investigated 31 complaints.

Officials say if the pumps are inaccurate, owners must repair them or face fines of up to $25,000.
