Retailing gasoline: At least twice a day Dan checks up on his competition

Michael Giberson

An article from the San Bernardino, CA, The Sun offers a glimpse at the retail gasoline world from the retailers point of view: checking up on the competition twice a day, worried about being a penny or two too high in price, the pluses and minuses of accepting credit cards, negotiating with his wholesale distributor over the cost of gasoline.  Better than your average newspaper story.

  1. Ed, I had the same thought.

    Of course if you make a mistake and price a little too high or a little too low, you’re stuck with the consequences for 24 hours (or else face the wrath of the local equivalent of the Warren County Department of Weights & Measures).
