"You Can't Do That To People": Virginia Gas Station Charges Almost $7 Per Gallon
Hours after Virginia governor Ralth Northam declared a state of emergency, one BP gas station was caught charging extortion-level prices on Tuesday amid the lamest 'gas crisis' in recent memory caused by the Colonial Pipeline hack.

One customer, Lether Kerney, wasn't paying attention when she pulled up to the BP gas station on Williamsburg Road - which was charging $5.99 per gallon - shortly before it jumped another dollar to $6.99 per gallon.

"I had half a tank of gas, so when it got to $25, I started looking to see what was going on. And after I got to $30, I was like, 'oh my God! I spent $35.45 to fill up my tank. Six gallons of gas for $35. That's absolutely ridiculous," she said, adding "Usually, it's under $3.00. This BP service station has always been the cheapest, and I didn’t even look at the price before I started pumping.".....'

 Quoting: Nobody You Know


Price caps always lead to shortages of product. If the price is allowed to float to it's natural equilibrium, then the product will be available to those who really need it and are willing to pay. It will discourage hoarding during a crisis. Smart people would have planned for shortages well in advance and would not be part of the problem.
