You can whine all you want, it's capitalism, pure and simple. Basically gas stations are in competition with each other. You don't like the prices you're paying, then find the cheapest station and go there, or cut out some driving. It's not even unethical much less illegal.

And keep in mind that many gas stations are owned as independent franchises. And their profit margins on gas are VERY slim. So you can bitch, but when the guy owning the gas station has a profit margin of <5%, I think your bitching is pretty seriously misplaced.
