Octane's razor

Well, somebody's getting a break at the pumps: the price in Iraq is running around five cents a gallon for the cheap stuff these days.

Iraq being short of refinery capacity at the moment, the US government is buying gas in the region at around a buck-fifty and delivering it to filling stations at further expense. I assume they figure they'll make up the difference in volume.

If you've got a dollar, we can give you 4 Quarters, 10 dimes, or 20 nickles . . .

People ask us how we make money, and the answer is volume.
