I had a tire going down while out running around. I stopped by a gas station to fill it up. Their little compressor on the side of the building was broken so I headed down the road to the next place. Got there and they wanted 25 cents for air. I wasn't about to pay for air. The other place was free. I headed on down to the next place and pulled in. Tire was starting to get really low now, I had to do something. Pulled up to that little compressor and they wanted 75 cents for air! I was pissed. I went into the station and asked the kid behind the counter why the first place I stopped was free, the next wanted a quarter but he was demanding 75 cents. He just looked up from the magazine he was reading and said, "inflation".

Looks like you had a choice; inflation or further deflation!
