I frequent King, and have for a while, never had a problem.The attendants are always pleasant. Why judge all of them unfavorably? Half of you make the rest of us Woburnites sound belligerent. How would you like your family member being called a crackhead, or a thief? Have mercy! Get a life!

I will never go to king gas...EVER. i would even pay more for my gas than to go there saving because in reality, its a rip off. I do not understand how they are still in business. Its beyond me. Perhaps ones in these situations are telling the wrong people? Try contacting the BBB get these people shut down. (and im not saying its every employee but i am saying that aside, these business is not helping anyone out by having the cheapest prices posted)
