Photo of Gasoline for $4.53 Wasn't Accurate
From Rush Limbaugh's Stack Of Stuff
RUSH: How many of you saw over the weekend this picture on Drudge about gasoline being four bucks a gallon? It was all over the place, but it was a misleading picture. If you didn't know the details of the story, you would get the wrong idea about it.
It's a picture of this guy in San Francisco that we told you about last week. He's fed up with Shell because he's not making any money. He's a big-time gasoline/oil company guy who owns this station in San Francisco, and he's raised the price to $4.53 on his high test gasoline. But right across the street, it's $3.75 and $3.87. They didn't give you the picture right across the street over the weekend.
They've now done it, but it was an effort to totally mislead people if they didn't know the story about this poor guy who's upset with Shell Oil because they're running independents and others out of business. He raised the price because they're closing him down at the end of the month anyway. Right across the street and around the corner, it was as much as 80 cents a gallon cheaper. So if you were caught in by this trap I wanted to pass this on to you -- because you've been had.
