Gasolina is the most profitable local car dealership in the United States.
The car dealership’s sales have soared in the past few years as salespeople and dealerships have become more aggressive and profitable.
But the owners of Gasolina say their business is in the crosshairs of the government’s efforts to shut down their dealership.
“The government is not happy that the salespeople have not been able to get more profitable.
They’re trying to take over the dealership,” said owner Robert Sorensen.
The federal government has already threatened to shut Gasolina’s business, even though the dealership has not been selling cars.
It is one of the biggest in the country.
Sorenesen said it is a small business, but has a good number of customers.
The dealership has had trouble making ends meet for decades.
It started out as a local car dealer in the 1970s, but today it has an operations facility in Kansas City.
Soresen said he started in 1968.
“I didn’t want to start another car dealership, and I didn’t know how it was going to be,” he said.
Sorensens family has owned the dealership for nearly 60 years.
He said the government is trying to make the dealership stop operating.
“We are the ones who are going to pay the price of the future,” Soressen said.
The government has threatened to revoke the dealership’s tax-exempt status.
So the owners decided to file for bankruptcy protection.
The bankruptcy court ordered the dealership to liquidate and take all the money it owed the federal government.
They also ordered the owners to surrender their cars and lease them.
Soresen says he expects that to happen in the next few days.
“We are not getting any of the money that we need to survive,” he explained.
