I don't think they need defending. I merely try to explain the economics behind gasoline prices.

As I understand it, Canada required the retailers to install the compensating equipment at the stores. US law does not require it, so it hasn't been done. And, FYI, the vast majority of retail stations aren't owned by the oil companies. Did you know that?

There's nothing illegal about it. And, considering that we have seasons, and gasoline is regularly sold well below 60F, it actually more than evens out. Congresscritters really are NOT the best people to listen to about this...

They have already set the precedent for paying for the device.. And even if the average American had to pay for it it would be paid for in one year...
Sure. You're of the opinion that the retailers should just eat the cost?
