While this oatmeal price discrepancy may seem a little outrageous at first, please be aware that it is simply a product of simple economics. Like most other consumable goods in California, the Hon. Govenor Gray Davis (D)has imposed a tiered tax schedule on the transportation and dispensation of oatmeal and oatmeal-based products. Under this tax structure, Ranches pay a much higher usery tax premium on the sale of oatmeal than do Villages. Naturally, this additional cost is passed along to you, the consumer. But all in all it's otameal at any price that keeps the mail moving, and isn't that what really counts?
