Worst Price Gouging Ever !

Today the price of oil dropped below $50 a barrel for the first time since May 2005 meaning that prices at the pump will soon be below $2 per gallon. That’s not the case at this Shell Station on the corner of Royal Palm and Arthur Godfrey (41st) in Miami Beach. These prices defy reality and are probably illegal, meant to trick unaware tourists in rental cars. For the best prices ( $2.03 today) go to Miami Gas Prices.

    FYI, for any non-Miami Beach native, this particular gas station has been price-gouging since the beginning of time. There used to be a rival station across the street that could somewhat keep these guys in line, but that station was jettisoned years ago in favor of that really nice City National Bank branch with an espresso bar that nobody ever uses. Once the cross-street competition was gone, these guys realized they are essentially the only gas station in mid-Beach, and acted accordingly. As an added bonus, everyone who works there is a supreme jerk.

    Indeed, Blaine and Michael! BTW though, there is a far less pricier gas station just south that most people don’t know about on 23rd st.

    And I thought the $2.45 close to work on 12th Ave. was bad!
