In the USA, companies like shell, Town Pump, Thriftway, Sinclair,
only make 0.5 cents to 2.0 cents per gallon on fuel,
the fuel gets them to come inside, they make almost nothing on gas.

(Wyoming is an exception, they make a lot cuz it's not taxed by the state).

Also, those are physical products, if they were downloadable, then yes, I'd download a whole hell of a lot of motor oil and chocolates, a cappucino, some smokes, and probably a tube of pringles!

It's just my opinion, ok?
