You see that extra insanity of fractions of a cent in gasoline prices as filmyak said, becasue of marketing. Look at it this way, no one actaully includes it when they speak. People say 2.43 rather than 2.43 9/10, or more logically 2.34. So, when I see two filling stations across the street from one another and one appears to be a cent cheaper, I go to the cheap one. We don't notice there is almost no difference, and people seem to be motivated by very small differences when purchasing gasoline, more than anything else.
