From the first:
Robinson said Chevron, which prides itself on keeping station tanks full, has had more than 40 "runouts" since the gas cap law went into effect. Robinson said before the gas cap one "runout" a month was considered unacceptable.
The second talks about increased activity for tow trucks:
Several tow truck companies said yesterday the number of "out-of-fuel" roadside service calls have doubled — or more — since Hawai'i's first-in-the-nation gas cap law took effect on Sept. 1.
This adds another level to the effect of a price ceiling on gasoline. If the trend of increased demand for tow truck calls continues, what do you think will happen to the price of those service calls?
As you see from the first article, even though they are seeing the result of the misguided policy, Hawaii is dropping is price ceiling even further next week.
