Station Owners Challenge

This is a comment on Rand Simbergs post at Tech Central Station, "Three Cheers for "Price Gougers".

I'm wondering if any gas station owners in the gulf area would be willing to do an experiment.

Raise the price to what the market will bear but donate all profits over 'normal' to the Red Cross for hurricane relief.

That way the available gas will go to provide the most benefit possible- both to those who value it highly by purchasing it and those who are in desperate need but not lucky enough to be at a gas pump while gas is being sold at a below market price.
