    Fine with me if they charge whatever they want .

    odd how the car and truck and trailer dealers can jack the prices based on supply and demand but gas stations can’t ?

    jacking the price in high demand , jeeps people from hoarding whatever item is in short supply

    Except that North Carolina’s governor had declared a state of emergency at that time. The state’s price gouging laws prohibits upping the prices of goods when the state of emergency is in effect.

    If the price was so expensive, why were people buying it? Was there not another fuel station in the town?

    A lot of the gas stations in North Carolina and some of the other states were low or out of fuel due to the cyber attack on the Colonial pipeline at the time.

    The most ridiculous thing to me is that stupid idiots went and blindly paid the rate instead of going elsewhere where for a cheaper rate?
    Then they post it up on social media to show the whole world how really stupid they are?
    I’ll bet if I tell a broker that my per mile charge is 10.00 a mile because of the supply chain issues they will just blindly pay it right? lmao.
    They need to stop all government intervention to try and fix stupid and let the laws of natural selection run their course.

    Did anyone notice that regular gasoline was priced just above three dollars while the mid grade and premium were both priced at $9.99 per gallon?

    Yet this Tik Tok user ignored the $3 gasoline in favor of the mid grade gasoline. Further still, if this person was willing to pay $9.99 per gallon for mid grade gasoline, then why not buy premium which was also $9.99 per gallon? :scratch:
