    The less Kum n go’s are around, the less the price of gas will be. Always the first to go up and the last to go down. perhaps the reason why they’re selling is customers are getting smarter in buying gas (and whatever else they sell) elsewhere? Never buy gas or anything from these criminals.

    I can’t smoke anymore but I always remember Kum&Go charging a buck more for smokes. Then any other place.

    After all the work the Founder put into growing the chain, it has to be a disappointment to the old man.

    Of course it aint the first time I have seen the kids take over, and contract the business to get short term gains. There are so many cases of kids trying to get rich quick after their folks built a business from the ground up, sometimes over the course of a century.
