I doubt the story because the wholesale price is just a few cents cheaper. Some private pilots have their own tanks because some airplanes can legally and safely run on car gas, but only if it's ethanol free, instead of the much more expensive leaded avgas. I've never heard of then being hassled for buying wholesale (though the EPA is another matter if the tanks are too large.)
It was in a news paper but obviously don't have the article anymore, sorry I can't quote a source it was the CT Post I believe, or the New Haven Advocate or Hartford Currant.

I don't get the paper myself so it was like at someone's house or at a coffee shop or something.
