2 gas stations near me that had for years sold either the cheapest gas in town (as monitored by a crowd-sourced web site and personal inspection) or nearly the cheapest stopped selling at a competitive price a couple of years ago. They’re selling gas now at about $1.30/gallon more than other stations within 2 blocks - except they rarely sell any. I buy tahini (best price in town) at one of them. I asked the clerk why they stopped selling gas. She told me they still were. Recently I passed by a station that has the same name as one of them: it had the same high price.
What do they have in common? They’re both owned by Muslims. I don’t know why this would have anything to do with it, but it’s a noticeable coincidence.
Does this make any kind of sense to anybody?
