"What am I going to do with 15 cents?"

"What am I going to do with 15 cents?" That's what Safi Yusuf, owner of Gas City, said in an article in the Sun/Mon Avis, about the slightly lower price he's paying for fuel from Limetree Bay Terminals.

He noted that "now that he's purchasing from Limetree, the fuel price has only been between 10 and 15 cents lower than is Puerto Rico supplier.

"I can't call this any savings for me or for my customers because what am I going to do with 15 cents?" he said, adding that he hoped to pass the savings on to his customers at his two locations in La Grande Princesse but the price of fuel at Limetree makes this difficult. "When they give us no choice but 15 cents, what am I going to do with 15 cents? I wish they can do better than that price so we can pass it on to the customers."

OK let me get this straight....you are paying 15 cents less...but can't pass the savings on to the customer? He HOPES to pass it on to his customers....

Is there something I'm missing here?

He's paying less, so why can't he pass the 15 cent savings to the customer???

My truck takes 25 gallons of gas and I fill up about 4 times a month.

That's $0.15 x 25 = $3,75 x 4 = $15.00 per month.

I could see a movie or go to McDonalds with that kind of money.

These Palestinians are so rich they don't know the value of a dollar (or 15 cents) any more.

Cocaine business controls America

[KRS-One]
One afternoon around eleven o'clock
It was freezin cold, he was standing on the block
Sellin cheeba, nick's and dimes
Sayin a rhyme just to pass the time
The cops passed by, but he stayed calm
Cause the leather trench coat was keepin him warm
But this time they walked by real slowly
He thought to himself, "They look like they know me"
They drove away, but he didn't stay
He jumped in the cab and he paid his tab
But guess who he saw when he hit the block
It was the same cop car, the same two cops
They jumped out quick, they pulled a gun
They said, "Don't try to fight and don't try to run
Cooperate and we will be your friend
Non-cooperation will be your end"
He jumped in the car, and while they rode
They ran down the list of things he owed
They said, "You owe us some money, you owe us some product
Cause you could be right in the river tied up"
He thought for a second and he said, "What is this?
You want me to pay you to stay in business?"
They said, "That's right, or you go to prison
Cause nobody out there is really gonna listen
To a hood," so he said, "Good!
I'll pay you off for the whole neighborhood"
Because

A guy named Jack, is sellin crack
The community, doesn't want him back
He sells at work, he sells in schools
He's not stupid, the cops are the fools
Cause everyone else seems to go to jail
But when it comes to Jack, the cops just fail
They can't arrest him, they cannot stop him2
Cause even in jail the bail unlocks him
So here is the deal, and here is the facts
If you ever wonder why they can't stop crack
The police department, is like a crew
It does whatever they want to do
In society you have illegal and legal
We need both, to make things equal
So legal is tobacco, illegal is speed
Legal is aspirin, illegal is weed
Crack is illegal, cause they cannot stop ya
But cocaine is legal if it's owned by a doctor
Everything you do in private is illegal
Everything's legal if the government can see you
Don't get me wrong, America is great place to live
But listen to the knowledge I give

How completely predictable that such a comment should be made, right in the first response.

15¢ a gallon for each and every gallon adds up.
Since he doesn't seem to want it, he could pass it on to his customers and sell even more gas.
Doubtful that shall come to pass.
