Rip Off?

I was buying gas the other day at the BP station at Annapolis Road (Route 450) and Forbes Blvd and noticed something very fishy. I only needed a gallon of gas to cover the one-mile round trip Home Depot truck rental. I got exactly one gallon of regular with the price set at 2.199 per gallon. Yet I paid $2.20!!! Now, I know this isn't much: $0.001. But, when this is multiplied over the entire industry, we are looking at a substantial fleecing. I wonder if more people are aware of this. Hmmm. I think I'll right my Congressman (Albert Wynn).
