So, I have no love lost for Salisbury landlords. However, may I ask? Why can the greedy gas stations raise prices at will, 20-30 cents per gallon, with tens of thousands in gas paid for in the ground at reduced prices. But we can hamstring the landlords, who in many cases haven't been paid rent during this crisis.

My lease is up on July 31(last 2 years has been increased $25). I'm more afraid of an unreasonable increase, once the SOE is lifted.

I have worked in the retail gasoline business.
There is zero collusion in the gasoline price market at the retail level. Nobody does it. The penalties are too great for price collusion.

Now Big Oil is a different story.
