It won’t solve anything major, but it might go somewhere with developing some trust with the populace.
What about creating a central reporting location for gas prices? One mandated by the government, available to the public, similar to GasBuddy. If a station wants to change it’s price, all it needs to do is report that to the reporting agency and then raise the price. Any consumer could log onto a website and compare all the prices available and then shop where gas is cheapest by having perfect pricing information. Gas stations get some of their advantage by being in control of that information. GasBuddy helped the consumer, but isn’t updated frequently enough or with a great deal of specificity. I’m not sure the end expendature on the program would add up to the cost savings to consumers, but the good will might be worth something.
Eh, just thinking outloud.
