Actually it'd come from the station owners' pocketbook and not the oil companies because the station buys gas beforehand.

When we had a Windstar van, it ate 18 gallons and it cost 24 dollars to fill. Now my car can stuff 9 gallons and it costs $25...

When I started driving there was a gas station at .87 a gallon. You would see me filling every container I could find at .30 a gallon. I might be able to afford a trip to go snowboarding at that price.

Actually, subtract 49.5 cents a gallon for the Federal and Wicsonsin taxes. That makes the net price $2.805 per gallon. Gas stations usually add just five to ten cents per gallon above their cost. So they paid somewhere between. $2.70 to $2.75 a gallon wholesale.
