You would need to ask Obama.. he is the one who said it.

I rarely pay a dime for gasoline, but thats because I buy lots of stuff from Giant Eagle who offers gas discounts.

I suppose i can thank Obama for allowing me to grocery shop without spreading the points around to others because its not fair...

You sure that's actual gas you're sticking in your truck?

Why not explain it to me. Tell me why two gas stations, who have different logos and owners, have the same exact price and not going 1 or 2 cents different to steal away customers? There must be a reason.

Has anyone paid less than $2 at the pump?

I haven't.

Are you sure the owners are different - or at least non-affiliated?

That isn't price fixing. Why should they engage in a price war? Can you give a reason why they must have different prices posted? There is no law that says they cannot have the same price.
