ALEXANDRIA, Va.–The National Association of Convenience Stores recently worked with The Wall Street Journal to produce a five-minute online video that concisely explains why gas prices may vary around the country—and even from one corner to the next.

“Anyone who has a friend or relative who is always complaining that there’s a conspiracy regarding gas prices, should share this video with them,” said Jeff Lenard, vice president of Strategic Industry Initiatives, NACS.

The presentation is available on both the WSJ website and YouTube.
