About

Consumer Affairs, Department of City
The New York State and New York City?s Weights and Measures laws require that any item must be sold by its true weight or measure. The NYC Department of Consumer Affairs conducts annual inspections and responds to consumer complaints against gas stations to determine if the laws are being upheld.

It is illegal to sell gasoline in New York City without posting accurate information about the product?s price per gallon, nature, quality, or identity (trade name, brand, symbol or mark). It is illegal to sell as unleaded gasoline any product that contains more than .05 gram of lead per gallon.



DCA is authorized to inspect equipment and all relevant business records.
