If thats the case Houchens might as well own this whole damn town. They own almost half of all the gas stations, all of the large construction companies, hell their name is even on Western's football stadium and the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce building. Thats not counting the numerous insurance companies,resturants,groceries , etc. No wonder why gasoline in Bowling Green is 20-25 cents higher than anywhere else.

I understand the right to free market but in this town its getting ridiculous

They don't own Scott Waste. Completely separate companies. Scott Waste is owned by a company in Texas.

It's ignorance like yours that allows the domination of ESOP's like Houchens to flourish. Yes, it is a serious matter. You don't even know anything about Lee Brick and Block, do you? Or what market areas they can control. Houchens owns too much, simply put. Look at their website and just see what they DO own, and you might be surprised. As for Lee...they manufacture most of the concrete blocks sold in Southcentral Kentucky and Middle Tennessee. Just think what could and would happen if they control this market like they do others around here. They could falsely manipulate block costs, driving the cost up to other suppliers, putting them out of business or at least out of competition. See what could happen, and based on their track record WILL happen.

If you aren't in the business and understand these matters, shut up. You only show how little you know about downward (and upward) business controls, manipulation of markets, and monopolies. Simply put, they are getting too much control and owning too much here.......just look at the gas prices around town versus prices on outlying areas out of their market controls.......but that's another thread on topix!
sure do

Exactly what you said!!

I've been told that the attorney General has been called regarding the gas prices. Endorsements and such makes People turn their cheek.

The theory is that they can undercut prices to such an extent that they run the competition out of business, then jack prices back up to recoup the prior losses and take advantage of reduced compeition. It's just that, a theory. To take that course is reckless and risky which is why it remains a theory on internet message boards.

Why don't you tell us who Houchens is driving out of business via shady business practices? Let's start with grocery stores, LOL!!!

They don't control squat. Unreasonably high prices charged in an area draws other sellers into that area to compete.

You are the one showing your ignornace as you obviously know nothing about how Houchens operates or runs it's busniess. 1. They do not control gas prices in Bowling Green. 2. They do not micro manage their companies to run out competition. 3. I am in the busniess, so yes, I can understand these matters and speak intelligently about then. Are you?

Waste Connections owns Scott Waste. Scott is only their DBA name. Waste Connections is the number three waste company in the U.S. Waste Management is number 1. Houchens does own Southern Recycling.
