14 Cents

I took this photo about three weeks ago. I had just filled my tank with fuel and had stopped just down the street for hamburgers. It's painful that the price of gas has gone up so much in such a short period of time isn't it? Most of us would love to pay $3.60/gallon for gasoline, wouldn't we?
But wait!
Click on the picture and look at the larger image. Look farther down the street at the advertised price at "Fuelman", where I had just refueled.
Fourteen cents difference in price in less than half a city block.
Why would anyone buy fuel at the BP? (And they were!)
