At a major intersection in our town, three of the four corners have competing gas stations. I have never seen them offer the same price for gas and
the prices usually differ by at least 5 cents a gallon. I've always wondered why people go to station Y and pay 4.69 a gallon when station X is
right across the street and is 4.64 and station Z is on the other corner and is charging 4.61 a gallon but all three stations seem to get equal
business. I guess it has more to do with convenience - what side of the street and what direction one is traveling and also people having credit
cards for station Y or speed pays for station X, etc.
Now that I think about it, I dont think I've ever seen two gas stations in the same town that offer the same price in gas! I'll start paying more
