Good point. That's what the news said. They're conditioning us.

I can find it for $3.89 but it averages over $4. That free gas I scored last week was at the hefty price of 4.07

There's a reason we fill up our car every time we go to Missouri.

I figured it was because Kansas didn't have any of them thar new fangled gas pump thingies.

We do, but they want to charge about 7-10 cents more a gallon to use them than Missouri does.

There's a station we went past today that's charging $3.89/gal. Everyone else in the same area is charging $3.77/gal. There were dumbasses actually getting fuel there!!

I think we paid $3.70/gal in Lee's Summit yesterday.

Kansas state tax on every gallon is $0.24. Missouri is $0.17.

Which explains why I often notice a seven cent difference.

There's a car wash right down the street from me that's always $0.10-0.15 more expensive that everyone else around here. I have no idea why people buy it there but they do. I suppose it's because it's convenient for people in my neighborhood. I go there occasionally to get gas for the lawn mower but nothing more.

Yep. There's a 'convenient' station closer to me than one about 1/2 mile nearer the local highway. It is always $0.15 to $0.20 higher. It's just mathematics.

Anyone know if it would be illegal for a gas station to sell gas for significantly less than what competitors do?

Im talking like $1 - $1.50 less?

How much a cut does the average gas station make off a gallon of gas?

$3.75 isn't lucky. It's just getting assraped by a slightly smaller dick.

Supposedly not all that much, some claim to only make around a nickel a gallon. They make their money from the other stuff you buy when you go in to pay for your gas.

Wow. I stand corrected. $0.54 per gallon and tied for 5th highest in the country with IL. Thank you Christine Gregoire. You worthless c**t.

About $0.08/gallon.

A few years ago a station owner posted percentages for each gallon and where it went. He copped to making 45 cents a gallon when the price was $1.50. I don't believe that's all they make. .08 a gallon at 10,000 gallons sold per day isn't enough to even pay the pump maintenance.

It's lower than what other's have stated. Much closer to $.02 per gallon.

Edit: Yep, this article here states 2 shiny pennies per gallon. Obviously that can differ a bit station to station, but not by much more than another penny or two. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24779216

"Retailers say gas thieves hurt them badly because they’re already operating at razor-thin margins of roughly 2 cents a gallon. A retailer would need to sell an extra 3,000 gallons to offset a $60 drive-off."

I have to assume that is the net profit after all of the overhead is figured in.
