Being aware that Here Comes the Shrink has posted about inaccurate advertising before, a reader in St. Louis, MO sent us these photos of a Mobil Gas Station in St. Peter’s, Missouri.
A close-up of the prices:
Note that these pictures were taken at night. To anyone driving on empty, $2.75 appears to be the regular price, and $2.95 appears to be Diesel. $2.75 is not an outrageous price for gasoline because Missouri has the lowest gas prices in the nation. However, a closer inspection reveals that the regular price for gas is really $2.95, while Diesel is not listed. Only car wash customers receive the $2.75 price.
