You Can't Go That Low
Some Colorado lawmakers say they'll push to change a law barring the sales of gasoline and other fuels below costs. Their proposal is a reaction to a court order barring two retailers from offering customers discounts on fuel if they bought a certain amount of groceries. A price war between those retailers and others pushed prices in Montrose, Colorado, below wholesale, and two other retailers went to court to stop the program. The court found the discount programs were in violation of the state's Unfair Practices law.
