Contaminated gas went to 20 stores in NM, Arizona

Posted: Updated:

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A total of 20 stores in Arizona and New Mexico received contaminated gas from a northwestern New Mexico refinery.

Western Refining spokesman Gary Hanson says a gasket failed, allowing water to leak into a petroleum storage tank near Gallup last week. The company has established a claims hotline.

Stores in Rio Rancho, Kirtland, Jamestown, Aztec, Gallup, Santa Fe, Farmington and Albuquerque got deliveries of the contaminated gas. In Arizona, it went to stores in Springerville, Show Low, Teec Nos Pos, Holbrook, Flagstaff, Pinon, St. Johns and Keams Canyon.

Western Refining is paying for repairs, provided there's documentation for the Oct. 8 gasoline purchases at those stores and repairs.

Two stores in far southwestern Colorado also received contaminated gas. The supplies since have been replaced.

Statement from Western Refining:

Dear Valued Customer,

On October 8, 2013, we experienced an unfortunate situation where contaminated gasoline was delivered to a limited number of convenience store locations throughout New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado.

We are working diligently to rectify the situation.  We have removed and replaced the gasoline at each of these locations.  We have established a claims hotline available 24 hours a day to assist you in getting your vehicle repaired if you were impacted by this unfortunate occurrence.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Tuesday, April 15 2014 10:47 PM EDT2014-04-16 02:47:46 GMT
    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
