    Question-Ames Gas.

    Why is it always 10 cents higher than Des Moines?

    Re: Question-Ames Gas.

    I have always wondered that my self as well. The only thing I can come up with is that the gas stations in Ames are not on the same intersections. They seem to be spread out. If there were several gas stations on the same corner, then they would need to compete for customers driving through, which is not the case in Ames it seems like.

    My theory is that it's a college town, so they decide to gouge the students because they will pay it.
