I don’t like spending my money in gas stations if I can avoid it.
The snacks, drinks, and everyday essentials are always marked up in price to a considerable degree compared to other stores.
They’re taxing you for the convenience factor of having these items available to you in a nearby store that may or may not be open late at night when other stores are closed. Or if you’re traveling down the interstate and are just getting off to refuel and grab a drink and a snack. When I was a kid, my friends and I rode our bikes to the nearby gas station so that we could get candy and soda drinks. It seemed like a cheap way to get candy at the time, but I’m sure the products we bought were susceptible to upcharges compared to the bulk candy you can get in large superstores. Nowadays you can even get CBD and hemp products in gas stations, but I wouldn’t touch those with a 10-foot pole. You have no idea what sort of pesticides or solvents could be left in those unregulated CBD oils, concentrates, and vaporizer cartridges that are commonly sold in all sorts of different gas stations. I also see those delta-8 THC products which are meant to somewhat mimic delta-9 THC, which is the form of THC found in traditional cannabis products along with THCa, which converts to delta-9 THC when heated or consumed in the body. Head shops also contain these unscrupulous CBD products. I’d rather buy my CBD and hemp from retailers that include lab reports with all of their products to prove they’re safe for human consumption.
