Cheap gas

I paid $2.04 for gas yesterday in Escondido. Fifth and Centre City. It was a penny less across the street but the place was packed. So I splurged. What's a penny to a rich guy like me?

This may not sound cheap to the rest of the country but we pay notoriously high gas prices in California and even more so in Fallbrook. Fallbrook Shell is currently $3.19.

For the life of me I can't figure out why Oceanside and Escondido can sell cheap gas but we always get gouged? A cartel?

Guess it is whatever the market will bear. Joys of capitalism.

It's the land value. Same thing happens with KFC. You can save $ by going across the
tracks, slumming for tenders in the 'hood.
