At issue is legislation that would prevent so-called predatory pricing .. at a time when independent dealers accuse the chains of unfair competition.
Joe Dashiell is in Richmond with the story.

Chatham Senator Charles Hawkins took up the cause, proposing legislation that would prevent gasoline retailers from selling below cost except for grand openings or going out of business sales.

[IN Q=I want Sheetz there]

((SEN. CHARLES HAWKINS/R- CHATHAM: I WANT SHEETZ THERE. I WANT WAL MART THERE, I WANT EVERYONE THERE, BUT I WANT MY INDEPENDENTS WHO ARE THERE AND DOING BUSINESS, WHO LIVE IN THE COMMUNITY, WHO RAISE CHILDREN IN THE COMMUNITY, WHO ARE MEMBERS OF OUR ROTARY AND SERTOMA CLUBS AND WHEN THEY MAKE MONEY, THEY INVEST IT IN THE COMMUNITY.))
[RUNS= :16]
[OUT Q=they invest it in the community.]


A spokesman for Sheetz said the company makes money on its gasoline sales, and isn't trying to put anyone out of business.
The only ones who will be hurt, says Mike Cortez, are consumers who will be forced to pay more for a tank of gas if the bill passes.
[SOT]
[IN Q=This is not an issue]

((MIKE CORTEZ/SHEETZ V.P.: THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE WHERE I AM WORRIED SO MUCH ABOUT THE MOM AND POPS. I THINK THEY'RE GREAT ORGANIZATIONS. I'M WORRIED ABOUT THE MOMS AND DADS. THE TRUE LITTLE GUY IN THIS THING WHO PAY FOR THE GASOLINE.))
[RUNS= :14]
[OUT Q=who pay for the gasoline.]


In the end the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee approved a watered-down version of the bill.
It requires proof that a competing station is put out of business before the state would take any action.
