ALL OVER -- Ever wondered why, if you buy a soda from a vending machine, outside of a convenience store, it's your ordinary two bits, sixty five cents or whatever. HOWEVER, if you merely walk INSIDE the very same store, buy the same exact soda product from the refrigerated section of the store, you have to pay TAX on the item? What give with that!? The very same product in the machine OUTSIDE the store, you DON'T pay tax on, but when you buy it inside you DO! What the heck gives!
