Everything in which business can take advantage of the consumer it damn sure is. Why in the world would anybody balk at such protections, you know damn well that humans are greedy and will screw you anyway they can.
An example beyond gas pumps and restaurants. In Arkansas where I have a lake house we just received a report from the Public Service Commission that the local energy supplier was billing customers a $2.30 fee on their monthly statements that was not legal and they’ve been ordered to issue refunds. With hundreds of thousands of customers that’s going to be a sizable chunk. Without the PSC, me and my neighbors would never know this. If the guy that owns the gas station offset his pump just slightly so that say it delivered 9/10ths of a gallon everytime it registered a gallon, we’d never know, but over the course of a year, that crook could pocket a lot of extra money. I could go on literally all day with examples.
Americans are never going to give up their regulatory commissions. As Jefferson said, if men were angels, we wouldn’t even need a constitution. And by the way, the regulators need to be regulated too!! And we have watchdog advocacy groups doing that as well.
