Yah...just before our Victoria Day long weekend a few weeks ago, our prices went from $0.95 a Litre to $1.24 a litre!!!

Now you tell me that this was not Price Fixing at it's most BLATANT!!!

And it happens just before every single long weekend all spring, summer and fall. What a crime this is, if we had a business and we treated our customers like that all the time...just how long do you think we'd STAY in Business???

Not very long

Oh ... I don't know ... What if your business bought the cheapest made crap you could find, forcing suppliers to drive down their costs year after year at the risk of losing your business, which means they wind up overworking and underpaying their employees and overlooking safety and child labor laws just to meet the price you demanded, then advertised the heck out the crap, filled end-racks and aisles with huge signage drawing attention to it so people would be impressed with your low, low prices, then ripped them off on the prices of all the other stuff they wind up buying?

Oh, yeah, right ... you'd be the world's largest retailer, that's what would happen.

Prices are "manipulated" in every business. It's not evil, it's, well, business.
