Phantom Gas

Updated on November 22, 2017

Phantom Gas?

Often enough there will be some scheme developed to make extra money. The trick is to do this without anyone noticing the effect that they are actually being ripped off. Phantom gas is just another example of how we are taken at the pumps.

How To Save at The Pumps?

I've been suspicious a few times getting gas noticing that when I started pumping the gas, the meter seemed to jump start at 9 or 10 cents. The more I actually think about it, the more I can recall this happening. I'm not saying that all gas pumps are rigged. In fact a high percentage of pumps are regulated and things are functioning normally. The problem is there are the small few who are fixing their pumps to manipulate the actual prices. I only buy gas where the pumps don't make me suspicious.

Phantom gas is a topic that people may read up on if they were ever suspicious that they were being ripped off at the pumps. Are you getting the gas that you are paying for?

      MLM works and is the vehicle rbeonpsisle for helping many people on the road to find financial independence, typically within 2-5 years.There is, however, much confusion and misunderstanding concerning this business model. A pyramid scheme has no real product so commissions are based on bringing new people into the scheme who in turn also bring new people into the scheme. It's usually the people at the top that get the most while those at the bottom get very little. Eventually all pyramid schemes collapse because there is no real product being sold.MLM, on the other hand, usually has a very real product that is sold either by retail or through members personal purchases (usually both). Members are encouraged to build a network of distributors to market the product.In MLM you can earn more than those at the top if you apply some effort.In a pyramid scheme you can never earn more than those above you, so when investigating an MLM company see if you can find out if there are people earning more than their sponsors, (this is the crucial test to weed out pyramid schemes)
