Also, for the “Don Ohios” of the world, you can control gas prices by reducing demand.
When an endless convoy of big, American V8s is filling up at the gas station pumps 25-50 gallons at a time, well… that’s a pretty damn HIGH demand.
I am gonna assume I don’t need to explain the economics of that situation.
Reduce demand by driving reasonable commuting vehicles and the price will be lower.
Or do you think prices should not be controlled by the market? Like the government should cap gas prices? Like end capitalism and go communist?
