I posted on Gasbuddy about Kwik Trip and their greedy way of being the first to zip up pricing for no reason and the last in town to lower prices. Lately they seem to be behaving...

maxstar: It was part of our political science project. We were comparing brand myths and propagandas. We got A on the project!

shalom7784. Had you come here you could have saved yourself the trouble of following trucks around. I have never heard of the big brands trying to scare people away from smaller brands. And distributors distributing to a number of how brands is not news.

How is your boycott going? Any tangible results?

QT is a corporation they meddle so they can the average folks through their pumps. Couple years a go I joined the boycott of major brands like, shell, Texaco, Valero, Exxon, mobile, BP etc. We found out the corporation scared people saying mom and pop stores sell low grade gas. we tail some tankers and found out that the same tanker that fill up Fina or other big brands deliver to the little guys. We tracked 62 trucks and their routes.

Gas distributors were making a killing profit either way.

We can prevent big gas from taking your dollar, but there are still people out there who believe corporate lies.

Actually this is essentially the same as an active topic created by sickofit56072 a few weeks ago, so this one should probably be closed.

Boycott Kwik Trip gas
