Shell gas station mini-mart had milk for $5.95 a gallon, while other gas station store had it for $2.99 and grocery had it for 2 for $4.

The comment about the middle man was exactly spot on. When I was looking for oriental rugs for my house, the same exact rug was being sold by 3 different merchants at $2,000, $4,000, and $8,000. Retail markup is usually double the merchant's cost.

Snob appeal, convenience, and lack of knowledge can all cost you.
Just read whats in that chicken your eating. Its injected with a bunch of crap.
