Well given this thread:

This is about a 1 cent per mile mark-up.

But this beer:

Approximately 0.04 cents a mile markup.

Move it to OTD where it belongs


No, I just get the mental image of a lonely little beer in a truck travelling across the country.

I love this guy! If you answer any of these questions seriously, though, you are just encouraging him/her/it

It has more to do with the states taxes and licensing fees than distance I expect.
