I suppose that's true, but it wasn't the point. Too many will gripe about a few dollars, no matter the service level. A marina can't afford the volume discounts that WM or DEF can and don't turn over product as fast. Therefore, their cost to carry inventory is higher.
I've even heard of people won't buy fuel at their home marina because the neighbors sells it for ten cents less. On the average sailboat that's maybe ten bucks per year.
It really isn't a wonder why marinas consider people like this to be cheap.
