An inconsistency with regard to pricing
« on: November 28, 2013, 12:46:50 PM »
Now that the Christmas season is approaching, retailers are slashing prices.

But over Thanksgiving week, gasoline prices are soaring.

In other words, retailers of general merchandise tend to lower prices when they anticipate greater-than-usual sales; but sellers of gasoline tend to raise prices whenever they anticipate greater-than-usual sales (including both the summer driving season and those holidays that prompt many Americans to drive a lot, in order to come together with the rest of their respective families).

Does anyone else see an inconsistency here?
