Gas Stations

Recommended Posts

Iv'e seen a lot of times 2 gas stations right next to each other and one is cheaper than he other and yet the one that is more expensive still gets people to come get gas there...so I was wondering why..

 

I came up with 2 reasons:

 

1-better food at the store

2-people are just dumb

People might have a credit card for one gas station and not the other which allows them to reach benefits if they spend some amount of dollars at the station. My step-dad has one for Texaco.

here's a thought Mr. "I wonder how the world works":

 

first of all, it has nothing to do with food. every gas station basically sells the same damn food. it's just that there's a lot of crowded intersections and such and it's a lot easier if you're driving in one lane to have a gas station on that side and not have to cross through the intersection. first i thought it was a bad idea too but obviously they're all making good business, it makes sense.

Exactly. Not that hard to figure out.

 

Only thing these 7/11's with gas have slurpees. :)

yeah but a lot of times they are literally RIGHT next to each other...not across the intersection...

That's like asking why would a BK and a McDonald's ever be next to each other. McDonald's could be cheaper, but more often than not I'm still going to BK.
