How those greedy capitalist gasoline retailers are gouging the public in Central Florida
Everyone knew that those low gasoline prices were not going to last very long.
At my neighborhood, where there is competition between Sunoco, Chevron, Racetrac, Citgo and a mom and pop operator which calls itself Seven Days, the price went down all the way to $1.94 per gallon.
Then, one morning all five of them raised the price to $2.09, then in a couple of days they raised it again to $2.29, and yesterday they raised it to $2.39. All of them did it at the same time.
If that does not constitute a conspiracy to gouge the consuming public, I do not know what is.
They did it while there is a glut of gasoline in the market.
Capitalism = People SCREWING people!
