Gasoline Price Question

Fri Jan 16, 2004 11:52 pm

What's with the nine tenths of a penny? I don't think I've ever heard an explanation of this before.
I'm not a real aeronautical engineer, I just play one on Airliners.net.

This has always bothered me too. The state says they will raise the gas tax by 3/10 of a cent but the price goes up a whole cent. What happenes to that other 7/10 of a cent?

GO CANUCKS!!
