Prices and Greed

Tweet [1]

It’s too easy to argue that, if rising gasoline prices are caused by corporate greed, then falling gasoline prices must be caused by corporate altruism — or at least by a decline in corporate greed.  (I did once succumb to the temptation to pursue this easy route [2].)

But perhaps a better explanation for the recent decline in gasoline prices is consumer greed.  Consumers obviously have become more greedy, thus explaining this decline in prices at the pump.

Compelling, no?
