No, it's a business model based on a fixed percentage return. The
higher the cost of the product the higher the value of the fixed
percentage. Not rocket science or politics but "normal" pricing
structure for most of what we buy. The only politics is the folks
whining about gross profits as a politcal whine. They conveniently
ignore why the numbers are what they are and focus on the numbers
Ah, now you hit the nail on the head. Fixed percentages. So at $1/gal.
they make $0.20 and at $4/gal. they make $0.80. Seems fair. Especially
when you consider the government regualtion on other "commodities" like
MILK, CORN, SOY, where the profit is a fixed $$ amount per unit, not a
percentage. Why is that?
