I heard they are going to drop the price of ketchup so Kerry can get elected.
They were also talking about giving away salsa if you register as a dem.

Actually the idea is very common in a "supply and demand" environment.
If the price were to decline demand will go up and as long as the supply can keep up prices will stay stable.
If more product is bought the profit ratio will increase as long as each unit is sold at above manufacture cost.
The problem is that gas is a neccesity and not a luxury item.
People, usually can't decide not to purchase the product so as to drop demand in any appreciable amount.
