How can they get away with that? - is there no such thing as liability in this world!

The price is going up because they are having to dump a load of fuel and re-supply quickly. This will have some effect on the short-term market. The oil & petrol commodity traders will take advantage and push the market price up. So not the retailers or even distributors (although of course they may still take a slice!).
What happens to the contaminated fuel? Presume it must have some use to someone?
