Stinking price gougers!
In the wake of this horrible disaster, you see the best of humanity, and the worst of humanity. Here, in our very own city of Little Rock, removed from this tragedy, some stations are choosing to reap profit from this loss.
Harvest Foods/Petro Pete, formerly one of my favorite local gas stations, has decided to charge $3.14 for gas this morning!
This is immoral!
Other stations are still charging around $2.59.
I am all for HONEST profit, but this is ridiculous, and amounts to Privateering if you ask me!
Let's stand up against this!
Update: Well, it appears my crusade is jumping the gun. The few remaining hold-outs at the lower prices won't be around long, I would imagine (and dang it, I get paid tonight.) The growing trend around the country is heading right up to and over the $3 mark. I guess Petro Pete is just ahead of the curve. Doesn't mean I like it, or them.
