The author reflects on the lower priced gasoline program of Chrysler Corp. in the U.S. He was disappointed of the promotion of the company wherein it entails using a gas card and the user pays no more than $2.99 per gallon. He believes that the company appears to have something to know from the processing industry on the shifting paradigms and finding new revenue streams. He stated that Chrysler created an investment of providing cheaper gas instead of boasting advances in alternative fuels.
