Captialists Just Can't Win

With the news of ever-rising gas prices, I'm waiting for the inevitable call for Congressional investigations. You know, the ones to show that gas companies are in cahoots to keep prices high and gouge the consumer for every last cent. Obviously, competition would be a good thing.

Unless it is a bad thing, that is. What is the biggest knock against Wal-Mart? Primarily is that it out competes local stores for the dollars of their shoppers. So, therefore, competition becomes a bad thing. And thus it follows that competition is both good and bad, and that the conundrum can only be solved by those who yell the loudest.
