Rich Saluja, the manager of the Lukoil gas station on Rt. 23 in Franklin, raised the price of regular gasoline at his station to $7.75 in an organized protest of what is being called "uncompetitive" prices that Lukoil charges managers and owners for gasoline.

Reports of over 50 Lukoil gas stations across New Jersey and Pennsylvania also raising their prices were still coming in by press time.

A press release that was apparently distributed to participating Lukoil stations reads, in part, "As a small business owner, I want to offer my customers good products and services at a fair price. Unfortunately, Lukoil doesn't share my patron-first mentality. Rather than supplying my station with gasoline at realistic market prices, Lukoil sells me motor fuel at an uncompetitive cost."

It goes on to accuse Lukoil of unethical "zone pricing," a practice of setting of different wholesale prices in different geographic areas.

The press release urges customers to call Lukoil and complain.

Lukoil is Russia's second-largest oil company.
