> It's called price discrimination across regional markets.

No, it's called competition. Do you think that if a given shop had no competition in its area, it would lower its prices? A Repsol gas station in Barcelona is obviously not competing with Repsol gas stations in Paris; it's competing with all the other gas stations in Barcelona. That is why gas is cheaper in some places than others. Because there is competition. If there was only one gas station in Barcelona, or if all the gas stations in Barcelona were owned by Repsol, do you think they'd "discriminate price across that regional market"...?

Your "theories" about european economy and law (in this and pretty much any other discussion where the word "Europe" is mentioned) make it pretty clear that you don't have a clue what you're talking about. Maybe you'll sound like an expert to other ignorant xeonophobes with an inferiority complex, eager to pounce on anything "foreign" and unknown, but to anyone with an actual law or economy degree (or a bit of common sense), you sound like a 14 year old who has never been out of his basement, let alone his country.

I for one am through feeding the troll.

To anyone with an economics degree (like me), I'd sound like someone trying to make a constructive argument against government regulating a companies capacity to make decisions for itself. You'd sound like the troll, with your picking and choosing parts of which arguments you want to take on and stacking the rest of your posts full of filthy personal attacks.

For reference, when I say "Europe" I refer broadly the Eurozone, those states under control of the European Central Bank, but "Europe"'s shorter and everybody knows what I'm talking about. Is that good enough for you, ass?

Anyway, if you ever climb/fall off your high horse, try and crack open an economics text not written for children. You'll see there are several reasons for discriminating across regions and that discrimination is more efficient in that it can minimize the deadweight loss, and that your examples are just skirting the issue.

With the insults being stacked about 10:1 against me here, I'm the one done feeding the troll.
