Doughnut prices tied to gas prices?
As reported by NBC News, Krispy Kreme has announced that starting today and continuing for the next three Wednesdays, customers can buy a dozen glazed donuts for the same price that an average gallon of gas cost nationally on the preceding Monday.
Any place but California, that would be equivalent to about $4.11 this week, compared to the usual price of as high as $20 for a dozen donuts, depending on location. And that may be why two dozen is the limit, according to the company. And when the stores run out, that’s it.
Of course, this raises the inevitable question: How many miles to the doughnut do you think I can I get from a box of a dozen glazed?
