Pricing at gas stations is another interesting story.I find it hard to believe that stations that charge 75 cents a gallon more than other stations sell that much diesel.
Although I'll admit I'm surprised that a new Chevron station in my area 2.5 miles away from another Chevron station can sell any regular gas charging 55 cents more per gallon than that other station. But its been open for almost a year and not adjusted its pricing. If I were the owner I would have started selling gas cheap to get people in the habit of stopping there and then slowly worked the prices up to find the point of maximum profit.
Stations that are in the same region are obligated to be at the same price as each other. Sometimes these regions could change just as far as a mile away. When I was working in the gas station it was explained to my my district managers and higher ups whenever I would complain. It made no sense to me that we would have to raise our price 5 cents because the station across the road decided to raise their price 5 cents.
We would be violating the gas station agreement. Even though keeping it lower would mean selling more and more profit.
