DENISON, Tex. -- This week's recent rains is causing more pain at the pump for Denison drivers. Several customers of the Lucky Stop Number 9 Convenience store tell us they had car trouble right after they filled up their tanks.

A store employee blames the watery fuel on those recent rains, saying this has never happened before.

The gas station owner says six people filled up their vehicles before store personell realized something was wrong. Those cars all had to be towed away from the gas station. Crystal Lowery says her car suffered $800 worth of damage.

"You always trust the stores to check gasoline, now you just want to take precautions about when you get gas," said Lowery.

The owner of the Lucky Stop Number 9 says he's offered to pay for customers' car repairs.

"It's all been taken care of...we'll take care of everything," said store employee Sarban Chipalu.

As for now, Lucky Stop Number 9 assures us no more watery gas will be sold.

    Whoo Whee! America this may be, but I avoid buying my gas from people wearing turbans! I'm sorry, I just don't like it. I will go somewhere else. And I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. I'm just HONEST.

    If the water got into the gas when it flooded then don't you think its would have gotten in there back in June when the flood hit and we got more rain then than whne we did this last time, so I really don't think its was because of the flood. You people complianing about the gas being so high get used to it and stop gripping about it, because it will not get any better and say goodbye to $2.00

    It's all a conspiracy! Do you really think those towers came down from an airplane? I think NOT!

    Boy o boy, do we have racists in this area or what? Why don't you whiners go out & open a convenience store, or work at one? What, it's beneath your dignity? Well, boo-flipping-hoo. Quit whining about it. As for high gas, just in case you haven't been paying attention, there's a lot more people in the wirld driving elsewhere, and demanding gas. OPEC isn't increasing production. And last I checked, Bush doesn't work for OPEC, nor is he necessarily profiting. Anyone who thinks there's some conspiracy is nuts. As for what McCain would do, what say you stop listening to the BS on the corner and actually reading something other than the National Enquirer and watching Dr. Phil, and get educated? Get the facts first. BTW, feel free to thank the disturbing trend of corporate America in outsourcing jobs to foreign countries- that was going on before Bush took office. And guess what- we're gonna have to get off the oil wagon eventually.

    The ignorance of you people both amazes and disappintes me. I for one am happy to see that the owner is taking care of the problem, what more could you ask of them. Everytime I read comments on here that are as racially charged as most are here, it makes me want to cry. Shame on you for being so ignorant in the information age, we all live in today.

    Didn't McCain say when gets in office he is going to raise the gas up so American's will have to find other ways to get to work. He also said that American's need to be whinnied from Gas. I am with Amy, We live in Southern Oklahoma where you have to drive 20, 30 or 50 miles one way or both to get to work. Do we all need to get a horse and Buggy???? And as for my name, how many people think Bertha is a german or irish name. I am a plus size Black woman and proud of it.

    Good idea ME, I'll hitch my 4 kids (including a newborn) in a wagon up behind my bicycle and ride it 20 miles into Sherman or Denison to do my grocery shopping or go to doctor appointments. And I can have my husband ride his bicycle to work (which is either 20, 50, or 70 miles away, depending on where he's working that day). What a brilliant idea! Just think of how much money I could save on gas!
