Question: Monroe County New York passed a local law requiring a

Monroe County, New York, passed a local law requiring a sign on each fuel pump at a filling station showing the price, taxes, and octane rating. The law was passed to prevent fraudulent practices in the sale of gas. It also allowed one additional sign, but the sign could not exceed 18 inches by 18 inches. A gas station owner claimed that the portion of the law controlling the size of the sign was unconstitutional because it exceeded the police power of the municipality. Is the owner correct?
