The longer you can keep the facade up while getting yourself into even more debt -- the better. It adds bonus points at the end of the game when you total your score.

It's called "gauging" and there is no excuse for it!

As always we are being taken advantage off!
Same exact thing happens at my gas stations here...a joke!

Also if by any chance I see a price displayed lower, I get in, I see a totally different price at the pump, and the staff tell me this price is... if you buy a card or wash or whatever.

Is there a logic in all that, and a way to buy it as cheap as possible? I live in Tampa, I have noticed it is much higher in Clearwater and Sarasota.

Thanks for helping a new comer
