Re: “Lawsuit Alleges Price-Fixing by Vermont Gasoline Companies

This is not a political matter although it's easy to say that.

It's simple...the wholesaler is also the retailer. That means they control the price from both ends. That's how they can price fix. Any independent stations gets gas from the wholesaler who also owns retail locations. He can not supply anyone who undercuts his prices.

This is called a monopoly and why when two major player try to join it must be approved as it eliminates competition.

Take all the politics out of it and look at it as straight business. There's a reason why wholesalers should not be allowed to be retailers too. They have a huge advantage of an independent retailer.
