I don't think much about the blame. But the funny thing about the prices?
One station will be 1 price and right across the road will be a different price and 2 stores down will again be different from the other two. And all the stores have lines of people waiting and glad to pay almost any price?
The good thing for us is. Our gas provider switched to a mixture of ethanol a little over a year ago and now all area stations and providers are 100% ethanol mix.
It has helped our are hold prices down compared to some others areas. Even though over all. Prices are similar.
But cleaner burning is good in my book!
Companies would tell you 3 months before they switched 100%, so you could have everything ready to go.
I will say it has been a great bussiness to be in over the years!
One other thing about the prices I talked about above. Even the same company stores just a few hundred feet away from each other will have different prices! LOL!
I understand price fixing ect.
WHY can't they ALL charge the same price! In the SAME area?
Especially when you can walk out of one and then walk right into the other?
