AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 6, SECTION 2902 OF THE DELAWARE CODE PERTAINING TO THE ADVERTISEMENT OF RETAIL MOTOR FUEL PRICES.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:

Section 1. Amend §2902 of Title 6, Delaware Code, by striking said §2902 in its entirety, and substituting in lieu thereof a new §2902 to read as follows:

"§2902. Price and Signs on Fuel Pumps and Premises

(a) Every retail dealer in motor fuel shall publicly display and maintain on each pump or other dispensing device, from which motor fuel is sold by him, at least one sign stating the price per gallon of the motor fuel sold by him from such pump or device, which price shall be the total price for such motor fuel, including all state and federal taxes. Such sign or signs shall contain no information other than the total price, except the sign or signs may state that the price includes all taxes or may state the amount of taxes included in the price or may include, in addition to the price per gallon, the price in metric units. The statement of the total price, as shown by the figures used in any price computing mechanism constituting a part of any such pump or dispensing device, shall be considered is a sign within the meaning of this section and no other or additional signs stating the price shall be required.

(b) Nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit other signs stating the price of motor fuel from other locations on or about the premises where motor fuel is sold at retail."

Section 3. Amend §2911 of Title 6, Delaware Code, by adding a new subsection (d) which shall read as follows:

"(d) The Attorney General, the Office, or any aggrieved person may institute an action in the Court of Chancery to enjoin any person from engaging in or continuing a practice in violation of this Chapter."
