9/10th of a penny is just plain stupid!
Why do gas prices still have an extra 9/10 cent in small letters at the pump?
Last time I filled up, I paid $1.639 per gallon. For all intents and purposes, I paid $1.64, so what's the point of hiding it? Most tanks today only hold around 20 gallons or less, so the net price of a typical fill-up would only be impacted by an extra 20 tenths of a cent, 2 cents
In a time where there's a debate over getting rid of pennies, it's it time they stop pricing gas with fractions of a penny?
I could understand using fractions of a cent if the last digit wasn't always a 9, but a changing number based on some market variables, but it's always a 9 and it's only purpose is to make people think the gas is a penny cheaper than in actually is.... [More]
