This is what was going through my mind this morning as I filled my gas tank, trying to beat the “Hey, It’s Thanksgiving Week!” price increase I just knew was coming (and which did two hours later – 25 cents a gallon) . . .
Imagine what would happen if groceries acted like petroleum companies ... "There's a holiday on Thursday ... lots of people will be eating ... quick, raise all of our prices 10% ... we'll blame it on supplier shortages or unrest in Iowa"
I know ... someone will blame me for giving them the idea ...but just in case, I got my gas this morning ... and my groceries yesterday.
