Have you noticed that the gas companies have been increasing prices by 50 cents or so and there is this big hub-bub and then it goes down about 25 cents and everybody feels better and it all quiets down?

I think they have figured out how to continually increase prices, yet evade a Congressional investigation this way. When the price goes up, everybody gets all up in arms and Representatives and Senators start threatening official hearings and such, but then the price drops about half of what it went up and they all forget about it. YET, it is still up about 25 cents over what it was.

If it had just gone up the 25 cents and stayed there, there would be that investigation, but because it decreases half of what it went up nothing happens

Anybody else notice that?

That kind of pricing is illegal in some communities.

edit: It is also illegal in some communities to have a continuous "Going out of business" sale. You even have to get a "permit" to have one and it must be completed in some period of time or the company can be fined.
