In Syracuse, gas was $4.21/gal. Honestly, I have no idea if that's good or bad, I'm so used to the metric system – but it was the average in the area. Fine.

A few stations were advertising a price of $4.13/gal. Of course we went there, hoping to save a few bucks. Well, those a$$holes were lying.

Turns out, there's fine print on the sign. Gas was actually $4.23/gal unless you buy a car wash. That's just false advertising. Who has time to read the fine print on these signs while looking for gas from the road?

Why isn't this practice illegal? It's certainly immoral. Deceit doesn't build a client base, you know.
