Evil Foreigner Tries to Lower Gas Prices, But Caught by Vigilant Law Enforcement Officials

Yahoo reports on the state of Wisconsin's ordering a gas station owner to raise his unfairly low prices.
But the State Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says those deals violate Wisconsin's Unfair Sales Act, which requires stations to sell gas for about 9.2 percent more than the wholesale price.
The station owner's name is Raj Bhandari, so we can assume that he stole the job from a hard-working American hick in order to send his multitudinous hard-working and of-above-average-intelligence offspring to superior institutions of higher education. He wanted to offer discounts to the elderly and local youth sports boosters, yes, but this is a slippery slope - had the state not intervened, he might start giving discounts to all consumers!
