Gas Prices: Too Weird to be True

Laissez faire

I heard about this through FEE. There is a gas station owner who wants to lower his prices in Chicago, but his competitors complained, so he now is not allowed to as does not meet the state of Illinois' mark-up minimums (whatever that is). Things often are not what they seem. Sure glad I live in New York so either ride my motorbike or take the train. Cars are a burden (unless you are taking children to a soccer game or hockey practice). Paraphrasing the Buddha, material possessions own you, you dont own them.
