why do all the gas stations do that now? i see no reason for it since every single gas station does it...why not just put the price 3.5 cents lower on the stupid sign?

my brother invested in that when they were coming out with that idea for petro-can... anyone who invested into the idea is rich now.

It's some sort of legal issue with one of those super market/big box gas station outlets selling gas really cheap.

i thot it was b/c all of the gas stations that had memberships gave their members 3.5cents off, like superstore, and the other gas stations are all doing the same to keep up and to keep the pricing the same..

it's so you'll think "wow, I'm saving 3.5 cents" instead of "gas is 90 cents a litre, WTF"

what I hate is the places like Safeway and Petrocan where you have to have a membership, but they don't take the 3.5 off at the pump. So you pump in $20, and then they take it off and give you back like 75 cents!

Whenever possible.......I buy at Stupid Store for a 7.5c discount. Even if you don't shop there...use the Super buck for some milk or something.
With an instore coupon, Safeway gives 7c off...and that's straight up cash discount....but ya, it's annoying that you get change when you don't wanna do the math:)
