The opposite of what it should be

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Ok, so I went with my bro to get a little snack at Taco Bell. I love Taco Bell and usually go there for lunch whenever we play a round (golf), but I go to the one on the way to the course. We went to the one right close in the city of Cleveland (inner city) and so I got a grilled stuffed burrito my favorite. Normally they are 1.99 at every other Taco Bell that I go to, but it was 2.29 here. Not only that, they didn't have the 2 tacos for 99 cents deal and everything else was more. They didn't have fire sauce either and my grilled stuffed wasn't grilled properly. Kinda weird that the ghetto TB was more expensive.

    A lot of times places like that (or places in general) are more exxpensive within cities. I know some McDonalds' in Manhattan are more expensive then ones in the other boros and other places in NY.

    I drove into Philadelphia last weekend. I paid the same price for regular gas that I have been paying for Premium in the suburbs. :eek:



    City gas : $1.35 $1.45 $1.55

    Suburbs : $1.25 $1.30 $1.35



    It has been this way as long as I can remember.



    Of course the city people always have excuses and won't just admit that they rip each other off.

    Inner city ("ghetto") prices are usually much higher than in other areas. The worst places are supermarkets. Worse selection, much higher prices. Some of that has to do with insurance, the cost of keeping a business in a rough place like that. Frankly, I think it's also price gouging, but I'm not sure why. Maybe they don't get as much of the bad crowd that way? No idea.
