It’s freedom.

Don’t want to pay $20? Wait in line or walk. Want to pay $20? It’s your money.

Want to make $20? Well, maybe charge $18, to compete with the $20 truck.

That is how freedom and capitalism work.

I know I know… the “subjects” in New York don’t really understand that….

LEGAL OPINION

Both selling gas without a proper license and overcharging under the current situation violate the law. I am surprised the sellers would publicly tout these violations. \]

Its all about timing and service.

Wait 5 hours at $4 gallon and 10 gallon max per car.
Or buy at $20 delivered to my car. can pay a taxi double fare. Or have vip service. Its America and ur choice. pay with your time or pocket ! Its like parking ur car by the 25 cents meter or $35 valet.

What's the halacha?
November 4, 2012 2:10 pm

I’m sure there is a halacha about such a situation!

don't own a car

now everyone can feel what it feels like not to own a car and walk EVERYWHERE, even MTA involves allot of walking, Crown heights needs help each other and give people rides

GAS HEROES

Just dont be lazy and walk or take MTA i did nottake my car out yet i just take mta for now

Good luck with the law

They certainly will end up being prosecuted for price gouging. Whatever their overhead I can’t begin to imagine it costs anywhere close to that.
This is a time to help each other — not make money off others’ misery.

They are heroes!!!!

As for those complaining about price, instead of showing your ignorance, perhaps you should study some basic economics 101 it will help you appreciate the beauty of our holy torah

agree with
November 3, 2012 10:48 pm

agree with #2 and #17 at least. If I was related to him, I would be VERY EMBARASSED. for a few dollars, he would be better off to use his midos and do what Chabad is doing. This is not the Jewish way…of course if he was really POOR and in a horrible situation chasvesholom, then it would be ok but I tend to think that he could better use his midos muscles to be exercised. This is a shameful thing, really

Amazing people.
November 3, 2012 9:44 pm

Thanks to them my husband went to work tonight. Yasher koach.

I'm actually embarrassed for them
November 3, 2012 8:24 pm

This is the most embarrassing thing I’ve ever seen. People taking advantage of others misfortunes. this is not a regular situation this is a natural disaster you should be ashamed.

Benedictine Enriched Gas?
November 3, 2012 11:35 am

I hope Reb Yisrulik got gas with at least a cup of Benedictine per gallon at that price!

November 2, 2012 5:27 pm

Price Ceilings create shortages
November 2, 2012 4:55 pm

Let them sell it at whatever price they want! No one is forced to buy from them. If not for the silly rule against “price gouging,” we wouldn’t be in this mess of mile long lines at the gas stations.

free market
November 2, 2012 4:53 pm

If you allow the gas to sell for its real price (based prely on demand) like $20 a gallon, then it will encourage other entrepreneurs to find creative ways to bring gas to your neighborhood. which will be a great service to the community AND will bring the price back down. the greater the supply vs the demand the lower the price.
Good for them.

thanks for the help
November 2, 2012 4:53 pm

I would like to thank this entrepreneur he made my life allot easier today at least I am not stressing all shabbos long that I won’t be able to get to work on Sunday it was worth every cent.

You guys are the best

GAS!
November 2, 2012 4:47 pm

November 2, 2012 4:46 pm

November 2, 2012 4:40 pm

I am not trying to laugh at people’s problems. But for local trips why not USE a bike. Plenty of those in CH and people sure can use the exercise.

Gas
November 2, 2012 4:15 pm

you dont know the quality of the gas…or is it really gas.

One doesn’t know if this is ‘price gouging’ or not. What was the sellers overhead? Who is he. Perhaps most buyer only needed a few gallons to get to a gas station when the situation, BE”H, changes?

"entrepreneurial" spirit ?
November 2, 2012 3:58 pm

More like bloodsucking spirit.
