Pumped up ... and down

Driving from Kingston to the town of Ulster (and back) this morning, I was struck by the wide disparity in gas prices - not just between competing chains, but even at pumps owned by the same company.

Of particular note: The Stewart's Shop at Lucas and Catskill avenues was charging $2.75 a gallon for regular unleaded, while the Stewart's at Boice's Lane and Morton Boulverad was charging $2.61 and the Stewart's at Albany and Foxhall avenues was at $2.60.

Also, the QuickChek at Washington Avenue and Sawkill Road was charging $2.65 while the one on Albany Avenue was at $2.59.

I don't get it.
