What’s with the .9 tacked on to a gallon of gas?
How did this get started?
It seems like a deceptive business practice to me. When we say $3.75 a gallon (the current price on a gallon of gas here in Santa Cruz), the price is really one mil (1/10 of a cent) less than $3.76. This doesn’t sound like much until you tally up the millions of gallons of gas being sold and then it adds up to a really tidy, hidden, profit for those greedy petroleum industry bastards.
I think we need a national protest to get rid of the .9.
