The State of Illegal Discounts

Two Wisconsin gas stations are suing a local competitor for selling gas at TOO LOW A PRICE. For real, this is actually happening, at a time when everyone is overpaying for gas, mainly because of opportunism. Apparently there is a law in the Badger State, Wisconsin’s Unfair Sales Act, that prevents stores from selling products at a discount.

Are they really saying that it’s illegal to give consumers a break? Have they been colluding for so long that they can’t conceive of a world that doesn’t collude?

This feels like organized insanity to me. I expect better from the midwest, but I am a Minnesota Vikings fan, so at least I can feel superior to Green Bay Packers fans..the only silver lining in this scenario I could think of.
