The Gas-flow Conspiracy

Has anyone else noticed lately that gas pumps are pumping gas at a different rate? Is it just me, or are they all slower? Almost like all the gas station owners got together and said, "Hey, if we pump the gas slower, no one will really notice that it costs more, since it takes the same amount of time to pump the same price in gas." Ok; maybe not at all gas stations, but I've definitely noticed it. The gas price has doubled over the last 6 or 7 years, and it seems like pumps move the gas about half as slow.

You think I'm kidding?

Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
(Not sure who said it; I first came across it in the Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson)
