Case Update

You may have seen a previous notice in this case. The Oregon state rule on unclaimed money in class actions has recently changed, and your rights may be affected.

You were previously told that if you did not take any action, your rights would be preserved. However, this has changed for some class members. If you did not previously receive a letter about this case, file a claim, or opt-out of this lawsuit, you may need to take action. If this applies to you, you must file a claim or opt-out of this lawsuit to preserve your rights. Any money that is not claimed will be paid to Oregon Legal Services and an entity chosen by the Court.

This is the official, court-authorized website for this action. Please do not rely upon other sites that may provide different and unauthorized information.

An Oregon jury found that BP West Coast Products LLC (“BPWCP”) charged more for gas than the amount registered at the pump and failed to properly disclose its prices when it charged a 35-cent fee to consumers who used debit cards to pay for gas at Oregon ARCO-branded stations between January 1, 2011 and August 30, 2013.

If you bought gas with your debit card at certain Oregon ARCO or ARCO ampm locations between January 1, 2011 and August 30, 2013 and paid a 35-cent debit card transaction fee, you might get $164.85 or more if you file a claim by September 21, 2015.

BPWCP denies the claims in this case, disputes many of the rulings made in this matter, and plans to appeal the jury’s decision. In the meantime, eligible consumers may file claims. No claims payments will be made unless and until the appeal has been resolved in favor of consumers in this case.
