Gasoline

The other day, I heard one of the radio talking heads advance the idea that part of California's gas price problem is because there's no competition.

Meanwhile, back home, they're having something close to price wars between the Wal*Mart supercenter, the grocery store, and the other gas stations. The grocery store even had a special sale:

A two-hour sale on gasoline packed the pumps at Buehler's Buy-Low in Tell City Thursday evening. Customers in cars, pickup trucks and even a camper or two waited for up to 45 minutes to purchase gas at $1.49 per gallon, nearly 40 cents below the regular price. Rick Wilgus, manager of the Tell City store, said all of Buehler's stores participated in the 5 to 7 p.m. special. Approximately 2,700 gallons of gasoline was sold during the period.(From the Perry County News.)


And this morning the price on base here in San Diego was $2.20...county average is $2.36.
