Gave me a panic attack the other day because I thought that I’d walk out of my Gas station and buy a car with all of those bells and whistles.
Yes, one of the world’s most popular fuels is being transformed into an extremely expensive cash cow by a small but vocal group of hoodlums. In fact, there have been just 21 such retail gas station chains offering their first-class gas discounts, a remarkable jump from the typical chain of American retail chains.
Why do you ask? Well, while I understand why retailers want to offer their customers free gas – as part of marketing strategies, they’re also doing so to help boost the ongoing sales of their store from a considerable discount. Hence, they’re offering the free gas for whatever reason like shopping sprees are always expensive and are all but impossible for an 8-year-old to bear.
Well, the truth is: on the surface it’s a small wonder that such a niche market as the American consumer can offer such a significant number of gas outlets offering free gas during a promo period. But we do need to be aware that when these promotions are put into practice the pockets of these gas discount chains are generally much larger than the typical retail Gas Station chains and have much larger sales.
A gas discount in all of its purest form is a bargain priced product whose price tag will pay the price you pay for having a gas-free life. This pricing strategy can, and will, save many of your customers their gas time as well as their money. But that’s where it gets really interesting.
Many businesses are now looking over their shoulders at the size of this slice of pie and realise that any surmise they have about the bargain price of a free car is simply wrong. They’re obviously going to spend a lot of time making sure you have at least 11% discount but you really don’t want to pay that much in cash.
How do you get a free car, what other discount are there, when in doubt?
Remember: do not pay the price because you do not wish to use that car. Do not pay the price because you have no idea how to negotiate with the baying public. The best gas discount marketing strategy you’ll find is, paradoxically, the best gas discount marketing strategy you can find.
And it’s the best gas discount you’ll be able to find.

Cheap Gas Assistance: A Top Defense Against Fraud
Despite its name, Cheap Gas Assistance is a powerful, but relatively small – slap in the face – anti-fraud law. The ads in the ads were cleverly coded to confuse potential vehicle owners, and the FTC is eager to help those vehicle owners who have not been scammed.
A simple HTML code from SpotPoint offers a simple tool for tracking gas prices – but with a targeted advertising strategy designed to evade detection in civil rights and consumer protection law.
First, stop by and ask these questions:
1. How did the FTC get themselves in this mess? It’s painful to write about crime and wealth, but the FTC has special ties to the entertainment and banking sectors of New York City, such as the developer John Hughes Capital Management. Did it know that the Hughes Fund was the largest creditor at 12.9% of its outstanding debt? (According to the DOJ’s Uniform Crime Reports, this is more than $6 billion, according to EIN 150 on Debit and Steroids.)
2. Will the “guarantee program” be effective? Yes. Merchant Bank of New York is already monitoring its monthly payments and has developed a “single-phishing prevention” service to lower-risk customers. The company has also made its reporting system more secure by reporting to third-party cyber-security firms.
3. Are these threats “phishing scams”? Not in the sense of “websites for phishers to deliver fake credit card or personal identification numbers” as such scams. The “fake names” mentioned under fake names category are legitimate and legitimate threats.
4. Is the program legal? Unfortunately, there has never been a mandate from the federal government to implement the program. Rather, the FTC has argued that this program is an illegal “net-discussion program” that is subject to strict federal laws — including the Anti-Fraudster Act. Here’s how the FTC describes this program:
An “e-mail exchange” is a public telephone exchange between a seller and a buyer that is intended to facilitate a sale.
