When we're forced to go inside to pay for a gas purchase, the station operator--likely working for minimum wage--is forced to take the brunt of our ill will.
It ain't their fault!
The primary reason is a non-existant federal--read owe-bama--domestic energy policy, secondarily, the retailer is "suckin' hind tit!"
Your fifty-dollar gas purchase equals:
Crude Oil- $30.75 (61.5%)What can one take from this chart?!? A "Clown Prince" stroke-of-the-pen could reduce the price-at-the-pump by 12%!! Ha!! Fat chance 'a' that!!
Refining Expense-$7.00 (14.0%)
Delivery Expense-$4.00 ( 8.0%)
Taxes- $6.00 (12.0%)
Credit Card Fees-$1.25 ( 2.5%)
Retailer Profit- $1.00 ( 2.0%)
'Splain to me again why YOU elected this Arschloch!?!
