On December 10, 2014, OHA released funds held in escrow for Highway Oil, Inc. (Highway) in the Subpart V refund proceeding. Highway submitted five applications for refunds in five different Subpart V proceedings and was granted refunds in each proceeding. During the time that these refunds were granted to Highway, Highway was the subject of a Proposed Remedial Order (PRO) issued by the Economic Regulatory Administration (ERA). The PRO alleged that, during the period of a DOE audit conducted in 1978 and early 1979, Highway violated the pricing provisions of 6 C.F.R. § 150.359 and 10 C.F.R. § 212.93 by selling regular and premium gasoline to its retail customers at prices that exceeded the then maximum lawful selling price   According to the ERA, these violations resulted in overcharges totaling $1,335,810.66. The PRO contemplated that Highway refund this amount, plus interest, in a manner to be determined by the ERA in accordance with the options set forth in the PRO. The alleged violation amount exceeded the refund amount that Highway was eligible to receive. Given this, OHA decided not to issue the refunds directly to Highway but to place any refunds Highway would have been awarded in an interest bearing escrow account. OHA recently ascertained that no further action is contemplated to be taken against Highway for its alleged overcharges. Consequently, OHA ordered the disbursement of all of the escrowed Highway refund monies (approximately $91,000) to Highway.
