It's weird when a price ends in a fraction. For example, gas prices that end in nine-tenths: I'm pretty sure I can't cut this penny/cent into 10 pieces and have it withhold its value, so buying exactly one gallon of gas must be impossible, amirite?

There's a really cool mathematical thing called rounding!

You wouldn't be paying for EXACTLY one gallon of gas then, would you?

It's so it looks like you're paying a penny cheaper per gallon than you really are.

Haha, I know. I do my research before I post. It also has to do with the Great Depression. It still just strikes me as an odd thing to do.

Is there anything else besides gas that is fractionally priced?
