What is happening with the price of gas here in Las Cruces?
.39 cents a gallon or so - you can't tell me that there
is that much of a transportation cost for the 30-45 miles
difference - especially when Deming, Lordsburg etc are
District Attorney or State Attorney General start snooping
around with your Consumer Fraud Division and hold them
accountable and ask the question WHY?
But then this would never happen in a Blue State run
by paid for Socialist Democratic party hacks - now
would it - especially when that is how Conservatives
were portrayed during the elections.
I guess it cuts both ways - Democrats are not going to
do anything about it - has been this way for at least
4 years in this state and nothing changed - so sayeth

As long as you have a monopoly by one retailer, then your prices are priced fixed. Sounds like anti-trust laws are being violated. One retailer has a least 19 stores in the area. Pic-Qick.

I absolutely agree. A report by NMSU economists a week or so ago stated that the reason gsa prices in Las Cruces are so high is due to the lack of "Retailers to compete and drive down the price." I have been saying it for awhile now, that convenience store monopoly known as Pic Quick is not lowering their prices which means other retailers know they can charge up to their price.
It is beyond me why no one up in northern NM investigates Pic Quick for price gouging and anti-trust laws!
