As you may or may not know, last night a Citgo station in Kentwood (52nd and Kalamazoo) was priced at $3.87 on the street. However, once at the pump, customers noticed the $2.87 and greedily filled up without saying one word to the station’s employees.
It is appalling to me that this went on for nearly four hours while the station owner (NOT BIG OIL) lost thousands of dollars.
For those who don’t know, the station owner paid Big Oil $3.65 per gallon for the gasoline and WILL STAND TO LOSE the difference between the $2.87 and $3.89.
It is frustrating that every single one of the idiots who paid $2.87 lacked the ethics to tell the station employees what was going on.
I guess I can understand how other countries view us, heck, even I understand.
And back to the basis: BIG OIL STILL WON, SMALL INDEPENDENT RETAILER LOST.
