Absolute BS Crap Reasonable Nice Amazing
 

One gas station owner says it's robbery on the high seas and that's why they're flying the Jolly Roger Pirate Flag over their station.

An honest American!!!

"Because we feel the gas companies and oil companies are pirating our country," said Gas station owner Daillene Argo. "It's just pirating."

Argo says she knows this isn't going to make Chevron happy. And that's the idea. She says her family business is getting blamed for the high price of gas though they make little profit.

The way the profit structure works now, the owners of this place say they make as much profit on this one corn dog as they do on a tank of gas. On a 10-gallon tank of gas, the station gets about 57 cents of the $30 charge. Thatís after the bank takes out up to 3.5% when customers use bankcards.

That profit is about what they get for the corndog.

But fewer people are buying food because all of their money goes to gas.

"If we lose a corndog sale, we've lost what makes our money, because the people need to buy the gas and it's just getting out of hand," Argo said.

So she's flying the flag.
