Trying to get away with highway robbery

It was in the news the other day that people living in southern California have been crossing the border into Mexico to buy gas at a $1 less a gallon.

Is gas cheaper to produce in Mexico? The answer is no. It’s just like being able to buy prescriptions cheaper in Canada for the same drugs that are higher in the U.S.

The big companies will charge whatever they think they can get away with.
