Well, to be fair, this is probably the only way this individual can offer the product and still stay in business. Ideally, of course, he'd just give the stuff away at cost, and the Disaster Relief fund would reimburse him for any losses. But given what it must cost to get the gasoline to his place these days, the prices might not be so unreasonable. I see it as another example of the government's failure to make it possible for local life to exist in any kind of functional way, rather than a greedy bastard out to soak a miserable situation and its desperate victims. Then again, I don't know the context of the photo, so it's entirely possible that that's EXACTLY what he's doing, in which case, he's going to Hell, most likely.
