The Price of Gas……Don’t be Fooled

I have been looking at gas prices in the area. I’ve noticed at Sunoco their price is $2.59 a gal. for regular self service. Shell gas station going down Concord Ave. heading towards Belmont is $2.69 a gal., Fresh Pond Gas, which takes cash only, is $2.54 a gal. I am trying to figure out why does U.S. Petroleum at the corner of Concord and Walden have such high gas prices and are not in-line with everybody else in the neighborhood. I don’t know if you have noticed, but they have economy, regular and premium. Don’t let the price of $2.55 a gal fool you, that is economy and not regular. You know how you go into a gas station and say fill it up with regular; well their regular is $3.19. They have a big sign with $2.55 a gal at the top and you just assume it’s regular, because that is the way all the other gas stations advertise, but don’t be fooled.

I hope this was helpful…..Your comments are welcome.
