Prices Apart, Worlds Apart (2008)
Malta: We read on Pricewatch that a consumer would rather complain about a difference in 3c between two shops that are 200m apart rather than simply buy from the cheaper option.
Luxembourg Border: French commuters drive up to 100km to refill their car tanks at a rate that is 20 cents cheaper per litre. While in Luxembourg they also tend to stock up on alcohol and cigarettes. All in an afternoon’s drive.
Plus ça change.
