IMHO the idiot would be the person willing to pay $7.

Frankly if I had a gas station in a good location I would probably be charging $10.
At that price you would not have to wait in line and I would wash your windshield for free.
The market charges what it can get away with, fuel should be no different.

Smile Rock Hill?

Anyone know if there are supply issues down in Rock Hill? If one had the need to head down that way tomorrow, could one feel fairly confident that they could fill up down there?

Thanks!

There are laws to protect the good of the community from such greedy practices, those that gouge simply because they can, but of course that is one of the serious problems in our society, the me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me crowd.

There was premium at the Hess station. Not sure about the others. This is the station on the corner of Mallard Creek Church and UC Blvd (far side).
