If Big Oil Gouged like Big Govt Post Office

Why are Govt monopolies exempt from price gouging charges?

Big Govt education has a similar track record.


When gas prices rose last summer, Rep. Bart Stupak (D.-MI) introduced "The Federal Price Gouging Prevention Act," which would make it a crime to "sell crude oil or gasoline at a price that is unconscionably excessive." Shouldn't we now investigate "unconscionably excessive stamp prices"? Monopoly has its privileges.
