We should be proud of Murphy’s response

-A A +A

So often media reporters have a tendency to place undue blame or financial hardship on individuals or companies in their quest for hard-hitting news.
Chris Sardelli’s article, “Cars damaged in gas mix-up at Murphy’s,” in the Aug. 10 edition of The Lancaster News, clearly outlined the costly mistake made that resulted in many vehicle owners becoming distraut.
However, Mr. Sardelli reported that the local and corporate management of Murphy Oil USA did not hesitate to assist motorists. Murphy Oil accepted full responsibility for the fuel error and gave every indication that all costs would be assumed by them.
In these unusual times, it is admirable when costly errors will be corrected by a large corporation.  Lancaster should be proud that the local and corporate staff at Murphy are good citizens.
This should also alert all local station owners to ensure fuel delivery is properly dispensed into the correct underground storage tanks.
Speaking of
gas issues
With all the renovations to our old courthouse and the security measures incorporated in our new multi-million dollar showplace, all it took to vacate the premises was an improperly supervised backhoe operator.
Gosh, the gas company will mark the whereabouts of the gas lines before you dig.
