MN has law for Minimum Gas Price

--posted by Tony Garcia on 4/10/2005

Hat tip to Anti-Strib...and to answer your question: I knew there was a law about.

Minnesota has a law providing a floor for gas prices. That's right, the thing that weeds out bad businesses is not allowed. Competition and price wars. That's right, something that benefits the customer is not allowed. Price wars.

We should be calling the state representatives and demanding the repeal of the law.
Officials from the Minnesota Commerce Department are investigating a fuel war in the Anoka area, where the...newly opened [This Is My Station] Exxon station at Hwy. 10 and Cutters Grove Avenue in Anoka has won applause from consumers and boos from competitors for its rock-bottom prices.
I'm going to gas up there from now on. And considering that my trip into work is 110 miles round trip that is a lot of business for them.

As you read the story trying to ignore the disjointed manner of the "story telling". The Strib is just not a very good paper. Their own stories are typically poorly written.
