DeEvening Links: Watergate Exxon gas prices

The Post’s John Kelly gets the most expansive answer to date about one of the city’s most pressing questions: Why is the price of gas at the Watergate Exxon so high? The answer involves a business dispute between gas magnate Joe Mamo and station operator Roland Joun, who are “locked in a mortal struggle,” Kelly reports. It comes down to this: The more gas Joun sells, the more money he loses. “The only way I can recoup our rate is to sell less volume and make more money,” Joun explains.
